After emphasizing the difficulty of diagnosis based solely on clinical, radiographic and laboratory data, the authors stress that biopsy is essential to diagnosis. The excellent clinical result, followed up after 5 years, was obtained with surgical excision followed by antiblastic treatment with repeated cycles of VBD, and local and regional lymph node radiotherapy.
