ABSTRACT
Seven patients having midline granuloma received local irradiation from March 1983 to June 1986. Clinically, all of the 7 patients had pansinusitis with necrotic destruction of the involved sites and one case revealed colonic lesion. Each of the patients received a tumor dose of 4,000 ~ 5,000 cGy/5~6wks to the upper aerodingestive tract using a 6-MV linear accelerator. Complete and partial remission occurred in 3 patients each, and in one case, the disease progressed despite of the irradiation.
Key Words: midline granuloma, Upper air passage, Local irradiatiom
