Tumor recurrence was seen during an 11-year, 8-month follow-up of a 58-year-old woman who had had an extensive mid-face defect. The various treatments, including extraoral and intraoral prostheses, provided the patient with an acceptable quality of life without interruption in use of the prostheses.
