Özet

Trismus is a more common symptom in NPC patients with young age and an indicator of advanced primary tumour. Overall response rate after treatment was 88%. Trismus recovered in majority of patients at the end of treatment and patients with complete recovery of trismus may have a better survival. (C) 2005 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
