Abstract

From January 1971 through december 1978, 71 patients with a squamous-cell carcinoma of the uvula and the soft palate have been seen at the Fondation Bergonié : 56 have been treated and followed. The primary tumor is often controlled by external radiation-therapy and/or interstitial therapy among the 12 failure observed, 5 were salvaged by a surgical procedure. The systematic irradiation of cervical lymph nodes areas allowed 94% of control, above the clavicles. However these good results in the loco-regional control are altered by a high rate of second primary and intercurrent death.
