34 The diagnosis is established by tumor biopsy. The role of more extensive surgical excision in the treatment of children with orbital RMS depends upon the location of the tumor and the expertise of the radiation therapist. Lesions of the eyelid may be grossly completely excised in some cases without sacrificing vision or appearance. Gross total excision of a retrobulbar tumor is possible, in general, only with orbital exenteration. Thus, many investigators recommend biopsy and local irradiation for orbital RMS 64,275.

7% (Figure 18A). 5%, and those treated with orchiectomy, irradiation and chemotherapy had a rate of 87% (Figure 18A). These results are not markedly better than those reported with orchiectomy only, but within these groups of patients may be a subgroup, those with positive retroperitoneal lymph node dissections, who may benefit from additional therapy. The relapse-free survival of patients older than seven years of age after orchiectomy was poor. 3% (Figure 18B). 2% (Figure 18B). These data suggest that these patients benefit from the administration of adjuvant chemotherapy.

The experimental patient group received identical therapy, followed by cycles of vincristine and actinomycin D every nine weeks for one year following the completion of local irradiation. 6%) patients who received adjuvant chemotherapy developed recurrent disease 220. The combination of vincristine and actinomycin D was less effective in patients with more advanced disease. However, a subsequent trial of the VAC combination demonstrated no clear improvement in survival from the addition of cyclophosphamide 219.
