Resumen

VARGAS DIAZ, José; NOVOA LOPEZ, Lucía  y  PRADO GONZALEZ, Eliseo. Tumores de la nasofaringe en la infancia. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2002, vol.74, n.1, pp.83-91. ISSN 0034-7531.

Nasopharyngeal tumors are infrequent in childhood. Their characteristic clinical presentation and the possibility of making an early diagnosis and indicating an adequate treatment will allow positively changing the development and prognosis of the patients. Four children with nasopharyngeal tumors (two lymphoepitheliomas and two neuroblastomas), who were seen at "Pedro Borrás Astorga" Teaching Pediatric Hospital, are reported. All the patients showed at some moment of the disease development unilateral nasal obstruction and epistaxis. 50% of the cases had headaches at the beginning of the disease whereas one of them had involvement of cranial pairs (7th,6th, 4th,6th). Radiotherapy represents the most useful treatment and nuclear magnetic resonance is of great value for the initial diagnosis and the identification of tumor relapse.

Palabras clave : NASOPHARYNGEAL NEOPLASMS [diagnosis]; RADIOTHERAPY [methods]; NUCLEAR MAGNETIC RESONANCE [methods].
