[Ophthalmic presentation of two cases of esthesioneuroblastoma]

Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol. 2008 May;83(5):317-20

Authors: D&#xED;ez-Villalba R, Gonz&#xE1;lez-Ruiz M, Izquierdo-V&#xE1;zquez C, Molina-Quir&#xF3;s C, Colmenero-Ruiz M, Ramos-Amador A, Jordano-Luna L, Mora-de-O&#xF1;ate J, Sanz-Fern&#xE1;ndez R

PURPOSE/METHOD: To report the ophthalmologic presentation of two cases of esthesioneuroblastoma (ENB). A comprehensive ophthalmic assessment was made, including magnetic resonance imaging. A paranasal sinus mass was biopsied in one case and a nasal mass biopsied in the other. CASES REPORT/DISCUSSION: Two women, aged 85 and 32 years respectively, presented to the emergency room with ophthalmic symptoms and signs. The first reported orbital pain and eyelid edema and the second, who was 22 weeks pregnant, reported a spontaneous lower eyelid haematoma, orbital pain and rhinorrhoea. ENB is a rare malignant tumour and its presentation with ophthalmologic symptoms and signs is very infrequent.
