abstract

  • Anterior craniofacial resection is indicated for patients with resectable disease. The complication rate is comparable with that of patients without intracranial extension. Gross total resection with histologically negative margins portends a better prognosis. Esthesioneuroblastoma has a better prognosis than other tumor types.
