AbstractThe results of treatment are reviewed in 18 cases of childhood nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Since 1976 adjuvant chemotherapy with cyclophosphamide, methotrexate, and adriamycin has been used in Manchester and Leeds. The outcome is compared in 9 patients treated with radiotherapy alone and 9 patients treated later with both radiotherapy and adjuvant chemotherapy. Relapse-free survival rates were 0% for those treated with radiotherapy alone and 78% at 13-80 months after diagnosis for those treated with both radiotherapy and chemotherapy. It is concluded that adjuvant chemotherapy improves relapse-free survival in childhood nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
