Two case reports of young patients, who were treated in the Otolaryngology Department from "Dr. Joaquín Castillo Duany" Teaching Clinical Surgical Hospital in Santiago de Cuba are presented. One of the cases presented nasal obstruction, rhinorrea and facial pain, for 7 months; the other one presented an increase of volume in the right ocular globe. In both, the results of the biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of differentiated nasosinusal epidermoid carcinoma.

Key words: differentiated epidermoid carcinoma, nasosinusal carcinoma, eyeball, secondary health care.
