Abstract

A mass in the neck, facial pain and cranial nerve palsies are the most common presenting symptoms of malignant tumours of the nasopharynx. Surgery is limited to biopsy for histological diagnosis. External irradiation is the treatment of choice, both for the primary lesion and the regional and distant metastases. Illustrative case histories are presented in detail. Experience over a 20-year period demonstrates that a 20% five-year survival rate has been obtained.
