Abstract

Malignancies of the nose, sinus, and skull base are rare. The most common histologies are squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma. The most common primary sites are the nasal cavity and maxillary sinus. Management of these tumors is technically challenging because they often present in advanced stages with extensive disease invading important structures such as the orbit and the skull base. In the last few decades advances in surgical resection techniques, as well as improved strategies to deliver adjuvant radiation, have substantially improved the outcomes in patients with malignancies of the sinonasal tract and skull base.
