Objective: To demonstrate by meta-analysis that the regional recurrence rate of squamous cell carcinoma of the nasal cavity may be higher than previously suspected.
Data Sources: Original articles, including a previously published series from our institution, were identified from a search of the MEDLINE database using both PubMed and Ovid search techniques.
Study Selection: Studies that analyzed tumors other than squamous cell carcinoma or tumors from sites other than the nasal cavity were excluded. Studies that did not report a regional recurrence rate were excluded.
