AbstractSeventy-one Chinese patients ranging in age from 9 to 20 years who had histologically verified nasopharyngeal carcinoma were reviewed. The presenting symptoms were often multiple, comprising nasal (77.5%) and ear (73.2%) symptoms, headache (60.6%), and neck swelling (63.4%). The median duration of these symptoms was 2 to 3 months, and 90.1% of the patients were Stage III or IV at presentation. All patients were treated primarily by radiotherapy. Forty-four of the 71 patients died of the disease; the median time to death was 18 months. Nasopharyngeal carcinoma in the young patients in Hong Kong does not appear to be different from that of the adult population in Hong Kong in terms of histology, pattern of relapse, and survival. Compared with the adult patients, however, the current series of young patients presented with more advanced-staged disease. The incidence of nasopharyngeal carcinoma in Hong Kong was compared with Chinese populations in other parts of the world, and the general pattern was comparable. The only postadolescent peak was found in the Chinese population of San Francisco.
