The distinct geographic variation in the global incidence of nasopharyngeal carcinoma reflects a complex etiology involving viral, environmental, and genetic components. The high to intermediate rates observed in endemic areas contrast markedly with the uniformly low rates seen in much of the world. An interesting epidemiologic observation is the early peak in age-incidence curves observed in certain geographically disparate populations, suggestive of distinct causal entities and the possible… CONTINUE READING
