Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a rare tumor in children and often presents as advanced-stage disease. NPC in children is treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The prognosis for children who relapse after treatment is extremely poor. This report describes the successful treatment and long-term disease-free survival of a 16-year-old male patient with a history of stage IVA NPC, who recurred with pulmonary and hepatic metastases. The patient was treated with a novel combination of oxaliplatin and doxorubicin without irradiation.
