Abstract Conclusion: Sarcoma and lymphoma comprised 75% of 20 cases of pediatric sinonasal malignancies. As regards treatment, all 20 patients received chemotherapy and 6 patients (30%) underwent surgery. The overall 5-year survival rate was 52%, with favorable outcome for solid tumors compared with lymphoma. Objective: We aimed to investigate the clinical features and treatment outcomes of sinonasal malignancies in 20 pediatric patients. Methods: Clinical features were evaluated and tumors… Expand
Pediatric sinonasal tumors in the United States: incidence and outcomes.
Gender, race, site of lesion, or histology did not appear to affect mortality, and long-term survival is dependent on age and clinical stage at the time of diagnosis. Expand
Pediatric sinonasal malignancies: A population-based analysis.
Investigation of the epidemiology, tumor characteristics, and survival of PedsSNM using a population-based database finds that patients receiving surgery alone had the highest survival; however, this may be a reflection of smaller, less aggressive tumors preferentially being treated with surgery alone.

There is a rare presentation of blindness due to a large sinonasal mass in a six-month-old boy and treatment includes Chemotherapy or concomitant chemoradiation. Expand
Case 217: sinonasal organized hematoma.
The epistaxis was treated with nasal packing, which prevented further bleeding and biopsy of the lesion was subsequently performed, and the coagulation panel was unremarkable. Expand

Malignant neoplasms of the sinonasal tract: report of 71 patients and literature review and analysis
It is found that malignant neoplasms of the sinonasal tract tend to present at locally advanced stage, with a high frequency of local failure and a moderate to poor outcome, and more effective local treatment for improving the local control and overall survival is needed. Expand
Carcinoma of paranasal sinuses: long-term outcomes with radiotherapy.
This review of a large, single-institution experience of paranasal sinus carcinoma patients who underwent RT showed that locoregional tumor progression and recurrence remain predominant patterns of failure despite aggressive local treatment with combined surgery and RT, suggesting a need for more accurate determination of tumor extent.

[Malignant paranasal sinus tumors. Diagnosis, therapy and results].
The prognosis of malignant paranasal tumors depends mainly on the control of the local tumor growth and modern strategies of surgical treatment in combination with radiotherapy need to be implemented in an effort to achieve a continuous remission. Expand
Treatment of 125 Sinonasal Tumors: Prognostic Factors, Outcome, and Follow-up
Sononasal tumors have a poor survival, despite early diagnosis, radical surgical resection, and strict follow-up, and there were no significant survival differences between surgery alone and surgery plus radiotherapy. Expand
Rhabdomyosarcomas of the Nose and Paranasal Sinuses: Treatment Results in 15 Cases
Surgical removal of tumor with subsequent radiochemotherapy can be recommended if a complete resection and functionally and cosmetically satisfactory results appear possible and patients with eRMS showed an overall more favorable clinical course than patients with aRMS. Expand
Staging and survival for sinus cancer in the pediatric population.
Pediatric sinus malignancy commonly presents with advanced stage, and rhabdomyosarcoma is the most commonly encountered histology, staging, and survival for pediatric sinus cancer. Expand
Management of paediatric sinonasal rhabdomyosarcoma.
Management of paediatric rhabdomyosarcoma requires a combination of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery, and early stage tumours with favourable histology can be treated successfully with radical surgery, provided that function and cosmetic appearance are preserved. Expand

The majority of cases of malignant tumors of the nose and paranasal sinuses was diagnosed in the advanced stage T3-T4 with the highest percentage in the middle region, and indications for additional irradiation should be extended. Expand
