Hi Sagar, esthesioneuroblastoma also called Olfactory neuroblastoma is a rare neuroectodermal tumor that originates from olfactory epithelium. It is a very rare tumor. Patients present with nasal blockage, nasal bleeding, headache, swelling of neck etc. CT scan or MRI of head and neck is recommended to know the extent of the disease. If the biopsy confirms the diagnosis, surgery followed by postoperative radiation is the standard treatment modality. Outcome and prognosis depends on extent of disease and pathologic grade. Data estimates suggest 77% 5-year overall survival for patients.
