A 76-year-old man presented with swelling of the right side of the maxilla. Spindle cell sarcoma was diagnosed on examination of a biopsy sample of the right maxillary sinus. We started CYVADIC (cyclophosphamide, vincristine, adriamycin, dacarbazin) chemotherapy. A favorable clinical response was obtained with 4 courses of chemotherapy. Partial resection of the maxilla was followed by 6 courses of CYVADIC therapy, because a small residual tumor was suspected. Histopathological examination revealed no residual tumor cells.<BR>Chemotherapeutic intervention appears to have been effective, with no apparent recurrence of lesions at present, 14 years after chemotherapy.
