AIM: To review the total number, sex and age distribution, the anatomical regions with malignant tumours, the biological nature of cancer and treatments. PATIENTS AND METHOD: Retrospective - prospective study of the ENT Clinic, Novi Sad in the period 1st January 1994 to 31st December 2010, including 81 patients with malignant tumours of the nose and paranasal sinuses. RESULTS: 56 (69.13%) of all patients were male and 25 (30.87%) were female. More than half of the patients, 52/81 (64.18%), were in the ages between 50 and 70. Symptomatology was dominated by pain in the nose and paranasal sinuses, bloody discharge from the nose and difficulties in breathing through the nose. The most often affected were maxillary sinus in 41.98%, vestibulum and the nasal cavity in 12.35% and nasal septum in 12.35% patients. Pathological examination established squamous cell carcinoma in 55.56%, melanoma in 11.11% patients, while other malignant tumours were less frequent. T2 and T3 tumours were found in more than a half of the patients 56.80%. After complete diagnostics, 55.56% patients carried out with surgical therapy, alone or in combination with polychemiotherapy. The operated patients were followed for 23,5 months on average. In 29.60% of patients there was a relapse. CONCLUSION: Squamous cell carcinoma is the most common malignant tumour of the nose and paranasal sinuses. The most common affected is the maxillary sinus. Although all the necessary diagnostics and therapy were carried out, recurrence of the disease is still present in high percentage.
