Abstract

SEPULVEDA, Ilson et al. Esthesioneuroblastoma: a Case Report and Review of the Literature. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2012, vol.6, n.3, pp.285-289. ISSN 0718-381X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-381X2012000300007.

We report on a patient who presented to our clinic with a one-year history of diplopia in the left eye, epistaxis for one month and pain in the occipital area of the head. A biopsy of the area was performed and the lesion was diagnosed as Esthesioneuroblastoma also known olfactory neuroblastoma. Due to the size of the tumor and involvement of the vital intracranial structures it was decided to prescribe a palliative care program and palliative radiotherapy.

Keywords : esthesioneuroblastoma; CT; MRI; tumor; sinonasal.
