Abstract

Alveolar soft-part sarcoma (ASPS) is a rare tumor. Cure is based solely on radical surgery. The general prognosis is poor. The tongue is an unusual site in adults, but not in children. Tumor removal can cause a severe impact on quality of life, even if reconstruction is possible. ASPS is a highly vascularized tumor and antiangiogenic therapy may have a role. We describe the use of the antiangiogenic combination bevacizumab and celecoxib in the preoperative management of a patient with an ASPS of the tongue.
