Abstract
Introduction

Head and neck sarcomas are a heterogeneous group of malignant tumours that vary greatly in clinical presentation, with different histopathological and biological characteristics.

Material and methods

This was a retrospective study of patients with sarcoma located in the head and neck treated in our centre over a period of 25 years.

Results

During the study period, a total of 25 patients were diagnosed with sarcomas in the head and neck, accounting for 0.5% of all malignancies at this level. The most common treatments included surgical resection of the tumour, often supplemented with radiotherapy and/or adjuvant chemotherapy. The final local control, including the salvage, was 52%, with an adjusted survival of 51% at 5 years and 32% at 12 years.

Conclusions

Surgical treatment of patients with head and neck sarcomas achieves acceptable results of local control and survival.
