비강 편평상피암의 방사선치료 역할 및 증례보고
Tumors of the nasal cavity are rare and are usually classified and reported jointly with tumors of the paranasal sinuses. Neverthless their frequency, diagnostic problems, management, and prognosis differ considerably from the latter and justify their study as a separate entity in order to define clearly and evaluate their chara-ctenstics. Males outnumbered females in a ratio of 2 to 1. Regional lymph node metases is infrequent; only 10% of the patients presented nodes on admission. Radiation therapy is more favorable method of treatment for nasal cavity tumor secondary to good cosmetic results and high local control rate. The tumor doses are in the range of 5,000 to 6,000 rads in 5 to 6 weeks and an additional dose of 500 to 1,000 rads were given through reduced field to residual disease area. The results of two cases of nasal cavity tumor treated by radiation alone were reasonably good, and review of literature indicated that the radiation alone can give high local control rate and good cosmetics. Therefore, at present time, we recomend radiation therapy for the nasal cavity tumor.
