Brian L. Wolfowitz, N.G. de Moor, Arthur Schmaman, Albert Solomon

Abstract


Thirty-three cases of squamous carcinoma of the paranasal sinuses in South African Bantu are presented. The incidence, pathology, clinical features and treatment of this disease are discussed. Radical telecobalt therapy, followed by extended maxillectomy after an interval of 4 weeks, is recommended as the most effective form of therapy in selected cases.
