  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We treated 5 cases with tissue loss due to either tumor or trauma, in the nasocanthal region. After surgical removal of the tumor mass, the tissue defect was left open in accordance to the 'open treatment' principle. Prompt and uneventful post-surgical cure was obtained in all the cases.

Based on our experience in the present series of cases, it is concluded that open treatment is indi-cated for the treatment of nasocanthal tumor in either of the following two situations. ( 1 ) The patient is aged 40 years or more. The tumor may be benign or malignant.
