BACKGROUND Primary head and neck mucosal melanoma (HNMM) has a poor prognosis with a low local control rate and frequent distant metastases. The objective of the current study was to determine the impact of postoperative radiotherapy on local control and survival. METHODS One hundred forty-two patients with primary HNMM treated between 1979 and 1997 were(More)
PURPOSE With the aim to increase the dose intensity of radiation therapy (RT), and subsequently the locoregional control rate, a very accelerated RT regimen was compared with conventional RT in a series of patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). PATIENTS AND METHODS Between 1994 and 1998, 268 patients with T3 or T4, N0 to N3 HNSCC(More)
The aim of this study was to describe the incidence, clinical and histological characteristics, treatment and long-term follow-up of bilateral germ-cell tumours (BGCT) of the testis in order to determine in what respects they differ significantly from unilateral germ-cell tumours. In all, 31 patients with BGCT had metachronous tumours and 14 had synchronous(More)
PURPOSE To review incidence and analyze profile of long-term complete responders among patients with undifferentiated carcinoma of nasopharyngeal type (UCNT) treated at a single institution. PATIENTS AND METHODS We present a cohort of 20 long-term unmaintained complete responders to chemotherapy for metastatic UCNT treated at the Institut Gustave Roussy(More)
BACKGROUND Penile carcinoma is uncommon in Western countries. Here we report on a large series of patients with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the penis, describing prognostic factors, survival and therapeutic results. PATIENTS AND METHODS From 1973 to 1993, 102 patients with invasive SCC of the penis were treated at the Institut Gustave-Roussy.(More)
The objective of the study was to evaluate the effect of neoadjuvant chemotherapy on the survival of patients with oropharyngeal cancer. Patients with a squamous cell carcinoma of the oropharynx for whom curative radiotherapy or surgery was considered feasible were entered in a multicentric randomized trial comparing neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to assess whether amifostine could minimize acute mucositis induced by a very accelerated irradiation regimen in patients with advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). METHODS AND MATERIALS Between May 1996 and February 1998, 26 patients with an inoperable nonmetastatic Stage IV HNSCC were entered in this(More)
Undifferentiated nasopharyngeal carcinoma (UCNT) is known to be radiosensitive and chemosensitive, but the latter has never been studied prospectively with phase II methodology. After an intensive work-up, 49 patients with recurrent (REC) and/or metastatic (MTS) UCNT were treated with three monthly cycles of cisplatin (CDDP) 100 mg/m2 day 1; bleomycin 15 mg(More)
This study was designed to determine if long-term palliation could be obtained in pre-irradiated locoregional recurrent squamous head and neck cancer patients, with the administration of simultaneous chemoradiotherapy. Mandatory eligibility criteria were histologically documented squamous head and neck cancer in previously irradiated territory, surgical or(More)
