ABSTRACT The aim of this study is to report a carcinoma affecting the maxillary sinus of a 24-years old man. Malignant tumors of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses are rare and a very heterogeneous group of tumors. The most common is a squamous cell carcinoma. Sinonasal malignances usually present as a difficult diagnostic and therapeutic problem. The treatment depended on location, extension and histology of the tumor, clinical condition and the patient desire. It consisted of surgery, RT, surgery and postoperatory R, and concurrent QT and RT. The treatment should be assessed individually for each patient. The treatment of patients with paranasal neoplasms requires a multidisciplinary cooperation. High quality care requires the preparation of a team of professionals dedicated to their work. We observe generally human trends to restore well being in difficult situation. Patients transform the information about them or change the values system. Psychooncological help in this field reinforces natural mechanism of restoring well being, increasing positive emotions and patient's own activity.

    ABSTRACT: Malignant tumors of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses are rare, with poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinoma of the maxillary sinus being the most common. The aim of this study is to report a carcinoma affecting the maxillary sinus of a young adult, with diagnosis only being achieved with an intra-oral biopsy, after the lesion had perforated the palate bone. This case stresses the importance of early diagnosis of maxillary sinus carcinoma, in order to increase chances of survival.

    ABSTRACT: Classically, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the head and neck is a disease of older adults, but recently there have been reports of an increasing incidence in young people. This study of patients in the Republic of Ireland compares sex distribution, sites, risk factors, stage and grade of tumour, and nodal status of 130 patients with SCC of the head and neck, 30 of whom were less than 40 years old. There was a highly significant association between age, smoking status, and site of tumour.For the first time to our knowledge in a study such as this, the preoperative haematological status of the patients was assessed, and although 15% were anaemic there was no significant difference in the occurrence of anaemia between the younger and the older patients. We think that it is possible that the biology of SCC of the head and neck in young people differs from that in older people.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of the present study is to define prognostic factors, particularly the impact of treatment on paranasal sinus and nasal cavity malignancies. Retrospective study of patients with maxillary antrum and nasal fossae malignancies. A maxillectomy classification as performed to treat malignancies in our institution is described. Multivariate analysis of prognostic factors was done using the Cox's model. One hundred and nine patients were evaluated. Squamous cell carcinoma was found in 62 cases and in 95 patients the epicentre of the tumour was located in the maxillary antrum. Ten patients were treated with surgery only, 39 patients with surgery and adjuvant radiation therapy, 37 cases received only radiotherapy, and 18 received radiotherapy followed by surgery; in five cases a combination of chemo-radiotherapy was used. Multivariate analysis identified T classification, orbit invasion, N classification, site of origin of tumour in nasal fossae, and no surgical resection as independent prognostic factors (p=0.0001). T4 tumours with orbit invasion present bad prognosis as compared to other T4 tumours. Surgical resection should be included in the treatment strategy. Because of the high frequency of lymph-node metastasis, neck treatment should be considered in T4 tumours.
