Background Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is particularly prevalent in the southern provinces of China,the aetiology of NPC is multifactorial but not clear.NPC case reports have a long history and many NPC cases of familial aggregation reported,but no report about NPC in parents and children in one family.
Case Presentation We report a rare case of familial aggregation of NPC, according to the order of incidence,this paper collected 5 cases of NPC in one family:father,mather Sons and daughters;to explore their diagnosis,treatment process and follow-up to understand the prognosis of the disease.
Conclusion From this case we can explore the most possible causes and possible measures for the family aggregation of NPC.
