BACKGROUND To describe the clinical variables and treatment results of patients with esthesioneuroblastoma at otolaryngology and head and neck surgery service of Hospital Central Militar Mexico. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study was done with the data of patients diagnosed from January 2000 to January 2006, at otolaryngology and head and neck surgery service of Hospital Central Militar Mexico. Data obtained were: name, register, sex, age, image studies, histopathological diagnosis, tumor classification, surgical procedure, complementary treatment and complications. RESULTS Five patients were included: 60% with Kadish C classification (T3 of Dulguerov) and 40% Kadish B (T1 of Dulguerov). Treatment was exclusively surgical in 40% of patients and surgical plus radiotherapy in 60%. Eighty percent of patients did not have recurrences and 20% (1) had metastasis in the neck. CONCLUSIONS The most proper treatment of this study was: cranio-facial resection by combined approach (open plus endoscopic). In advanced stages radiotherapy was added; however, this article presents few cases to establish statistically significant conclusions.

    OBJECTIVES: Preoperative radiotherapy followed by rectal resection with total mesorectal excision (TME) and colo-anal anastomosis severely compromises anorectal function, which has been attributed to a decrease in neorectal capacity and neorectal compliance. However, to what extent altered...

    Mucosal melanoma of the nasal cavity is a rare tumour. With the extended used of nasal endoscopes and advent of CT scan, early diagnosis of nasal melanoma and accurate assessment of its extent is possible. This allows endoscopic excision of tumour, avoiding unnecessary removal of healthy tissue....
