  • Look Inside

Olfactory neuroblastoma is a rare tumor originating in the upper nasal cavity. It rarely extends intracrani-ally. We report a clinical case of olfactory neuroblas-toma with intracranial extension and distant metasta-sis.

A 35-year-old man complained of nasal stuffiness and bleeding, headache and vomiting. Neurological examination showed anosmia and papilledema. MRI showed a huge mass that occupied the right nasal and paranasal cavities, and extended into the right frontal base.
