Abstract

Multimodal treatment modality for paranasal sinus malignancies is discussed. Therapy consists in pre-operative 50 Gy radiotherapy delivered over 5 weeks, followed three weeks later by a medial maxillectomy. Although local control rate is improved through this treatment, an increase in late metastases is observed.
