This is to report the results of 3-dimensional (3D) high dose re-irradiation (re-RT) for patients with locally recurrent nasopharyngeal cancer. Between May 1995 and Dec. 2000, 21 patients with locally recurrent cancer of the nasopharynx received high dose 3D re-RT at Samsung Medical Center. The median 55 (45 - 70) Gy was applied by daily fractions of 2.5 Gy or 3.0 Gy.
