Abstract

We present 87 patients with cancer of the nasopharynx treated in the Fundación "Jiménez Díaz" de Madrid, in the last fifteen years. The clinical aspects of the illness, the therapeutic techniques and the results are analyzed. The global survival and the disease free survival at 5 years were 34 and 22% respectively. Survival in patients with squamous cell carcinoma was somewhat better. Distant metastases was presented in 30% of patients. At present 16 patients are alive and free of disease.
