A Rare Presentation of Primary Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma NPC in Mediastinum

English Abstract

Introduction: Nasopharyngeal carcinoma among the children has been rare accounting for only 1% of all pediatric malignancies. Both genetic and environmental factors have contributed to the development of nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Among the children there was a higher rate of undifferentiated histology. The mean age of nasopharyngeal carcinoma diagnosis has been 11 years old age; and the most common site was nasopharynx. Palpable lymphadenopathy, dysphasia and neural defect were common associated signs. Case Presentation: A 15-year-old boy has presented with a mass that located near by the heart in the left side of mediastinum with invasion to anterior mediastinum from two years ago. In biopsy, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, non-keratinizing type, has diagnosed while there was no involvement of nasopharyngeal region. Patient has treated by 70 Gy (2.0 Gy/fraction) radiotherapy plus concomitant chemotherapy with base of docetaxel. But the mass had no regression. Then, the patient has treated with Cisplatin 100 mg/m2 IV on days 1, 22, and 43 with radiation, then cisplatin 80 mg/m2 IV on day 1 plus fluorouracil (5-FU) 1000 mg/m2/day by continuous IV infusion on days 1 - 4 every 4wk for 3 cycles and after remission interferon beta has added to treatment for 6 months duration as a maintenance therapy. After 1 year follow up; the patient was in complete remission. In the course of therapy, only hypothyroidism has occurred. Conclusions: Nasopharyngeal carcinoma in childhood, without nasopharyngeal involvement, initially could be detected in other sites such as pericardium. Also good results could be respected by cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil based neoadjuvant chemotherapy before radiotherapy plus interferon beta as a maintenance therapy in childhood aggressive nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
