BACKGROUND. Carcinoma of the paranasal sinuses is rare. Standard therapeutic modalities consist of surgery and radiotherapy (RT). Because of the often advanced stage and the vicinity of optic structures, RT-induced ocular toxicity is a feared side effect of conventional RT. Intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) is a relatively new technique, which is implemented with the hypothesis that, compared with conventional RT, it would result in a lower rate of ocular toxicity for an equal local control (LC).
