Abstract

A retrospective analysis was performed of 250 cases of carcinoma of the maxillary antrum seen over a 10 years period (1975–1984). 98.24% patients were seen in T3 and T4 stages (UICC 1985). 40.7% patients presented with clinically palpable nodes. 42.9% patients were treated by radical radiation and 18.6% by a combination of preoperative radiation followed by surgery. Rest 38.5% patients were treated with palliative intention. Three year disease free survival was 39.58% with radiation alone and 51.91% with combined modality treatment which includes patients salvaged by surgery. Failures were mainly at the local site, 75.86% with radiation alone and 60% with combined modality treatment. Combined modality treatment, preferably preoperative radiation followed by radical surgery, gives the best results in the management of carcinoma of the maxillary antrum.
