Abstract

In most cases of advanced sinonasal and ventral skull base cancer, a multimodal treatment approach provides the best chance for improved outcomes. Depending on the tumor type and extent of disease, systemic chemotherapy has been shown to play an important role in neoadjuvant, concomitant, and adjuvant settings. The lack of randomized trials continues to limit its indications. Further high-quality studies are needed to understand ideal chemotherapeutic regimens and their role and sequential timing in sinonasal and ventral skull base cancer.
