Nasopharyngeal carcinoma is a primary malignancy of nasopharyngeal epithelium, firstly de- scribed as a separate entity by Regaud and Schmincke in 1921. Although it is a rare tumor, reprsent- ing less than 1% of pediatric malignancies, it accounts for 9% of the nasopharyngeal neoplasms of childhood, and has not been reported in Korean child. We experienced two cases of nasopharyngeal carcinoma in a 10 year-old boy and a 12 year-old girl brought to SNUCH because of neck masses. The boy received radiotherapy and chemotherapy to include cisplatin, bleomycin, and 5-FU with dramatic resolution of tumor. We report two cases of childhood nasopharyngeal carcinoma with brief review of the related literatures.
