Esthesioneuroblastoma: A Rare Case Report
Esthesioneuroblastoma (ENB), also called olfactory neuroblastoma accounts for approximately 1-5% of all paranasal sinus malignant tumors, making it quite uncommon. The usual imaging findings are that of a locally invasive disease. Diagnostic delays are typically caused by the subtle and non-specific nature of the clinical features. We report a case of a 40-year-old woman who had presenting symptoms of nasal obstruction, frontal headache and diminished vision in the left eye who was diagnosed to have Esthesioneuroblastoma. The patient underwent surgery and histopathological findings confirmed the diagnosis of Esthesioneuroblastoma. Delay in diagnosis of these tumors can often lead to terrible prognosis and poor outcomes of surgery or conservative therapy.
