About Esthesioneuroblastoma (ENB)

Esthesioneuroblastoma (ENB) is an extremely rare tumor that develops in the nose. Treatment options may include skull base surgery or endoscopic endonasal surgery. At Columbia’s Skull Base Tumor Center, our neurosurgeons offer particular expertise in the surgical options available for removal of ENBs.

This tumor also goes by the name olfactory neuroblastoma because it arises from olfactory nerve cells, which are located in the upper part of the nasal cavity, adjacent to the base of the brain. This location makes ENBs one type of skull base tumor.

In general, ENBs grow slowly. ENB generally has a good prognosis if the tumor is small and has not metastasized to other parts of the body.
