Abstract

After a wide literature review, we retrospectively analyzed the accurately recorded early onset and late symptoms at first diagnosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) in a series of 85 patients. Thirty-seven (44%) and 48 (56%) of cases had a squamous (SCC) and undifferentiated (UCNT) histological NPC subtype, respectively. Thirteen (15%), 21 (25%) and 51 (60%) of cases were T2, T3 and T4, respectively. The involvement of locoregional lymph nodes resulted significantly more frequent in UCNT with respect to SCC (35% versus 18% respectively; p
