[Tumors of the anus].


On the basis of an analysis of a personal series of anal tumours, it is concluded that the polychemotherapeutic protocol with mitomycin and 5-fluorouracil and extensive local tumour removal proposed by Nigro et al. could present a valid alternative to Miles anorectal amputation. The treatment proposed offers better quality of life for the patient without changing oncological radicality and survival.
