A 45-year-old man visited our hospital complaining of a right hearing loss. The head and neck examination was unremarkable except for right secretory otitis media. Fiberoptic examination of the nose and the epipharynx revealed a mass. Transnasal biopsy was performed and histologic analysis revealed adenoid cystic carcinoma. Invasion of the sphenoid sinus was identified by MRI. He was treated with FAR therapy (5-FU, Vit A, Radiation) and chemotherapy (intra-arterial infusion of ADM). Severe side effects were not seen during treatment. After treatment, the majority of the tumor mass disappeared on fiberoptic examination and MRI. On repeat biopsy specimens, no cancer cells were found. The patient was alive with no evidence of disease as of August 1997.
