Recurrences in these tumours are not unusual. The recurrent tumours appear in late adolescence, have extensions and receive treatment late, particularly when operated with limited exposures and bleeding is more profuse. Collagenisation, inflammation and fibrosis appear to be definite predisposing factors to recurrence rather than vascularity. The extended transpalatal-transpterygopalatine excision seems to be the most suitable procedure for the larger tumours. Anterior extensions require lateral rhinotomy. In many case the recurrences are reactivated residual tumours.
