Strong et al  stated that 60% of patients died of neck recurrence when they were managed by only resection of primary and observation of neck . SOHND [Supra omohyoid neck dissection] is not adequate enough for complete pathological evaluation of all neck nodes at risk for patients of oral tongue malignancy.
