Abstract

Esthesioneuroblastoma is a rare tumor localized in the superior part of the nasal cavity. Extension in the anterior cerebral fossa is sometimes observed. As we discovered in our patient, the location of the tumor above the cribriform plate was very unusual and meningioma was suspected. Features and prognosis are discussed below
