    Abstract

    Esthesioneuroblastoma is a rare neoplasm of nose & paranasal sinuses and anterior skullbase. Management includes either radiotherapy or surgery or both. Surgical management can be done by external neurosurgical approach (i.e. craniofacial resection) or endoscopic approach. In the present case report we present our experience of the management of an extensive esthesioneuroblastoma kadish stage C treated by endoscopic excision and postoperative radiotherapy.
