Computed tomography (CT)-defined skeletal muscle depletion and malnutrition are demonstrated as poor prognostic factors in patients with head and neck cancer (HNC), however to date, have only been explored in isolation. We aimed to describe body composition profile and examine the impact of nutritional status as well as independently and concurrently occurring body composition features on overall survival, treatment completion, unplanned admissions and length of stay (LOS) in patients undergoing radiotherapy (RT) or chemoradiotherapy (CRT) of curative intent for HNC.
