Abstract

MOGEDAS-VEGARA, Alfonso et al. Sub-frontal approach in the treatment of esthesioneuroblastoma. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2014, vol.36, n.4, pp.182-187. ISSN 2173-9161.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.maxilo.2012.09.007.

Esthesioneuroblastoma is a rare malignant tumor of the olfactory mucosa located in the sinonasal tract with a controversial management due to its low incidence and unknown origin. Craniofacial resection using a subfrontal approach is one of the techniques of choice for treating this complex entity. We describe a case treated in our institution that responded favorably to this procedure, as well as a thorough review of the literature regarding this type of tumor and the advantages of the approach.

Keywords : Esthesioneuroblastoma; Skull base; Subfrontal approach; Craniofacial resection.
