Neoplasm of Nasal Cavity


Presentation

  • In this article, we present a rare case of myoepithelial neoplasm of nasal cavity in an 11-year-old boy in the light of literature data.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epistaxis
  • Patient presented with an increase in the frequency and severity of epistaxis of 2 weeks duration, which was seen on blowing the nose. There was no history of spontaneous episodes of epistaxis.[amhsjournal.org]
  • However, it is reasonable to believe that the rich tumor vascularity is the cause for epistaxis, which can be recurrent and intractable for large tumor.[ajnr.org]
  • Lee HM, Kang HJ, Lee SH (2005) Metastatic renal cell carcinoma presenting as epistaxis. Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 262: 69-71.[omicsonline.org]
  • A 29-year-old male presented with intermittent epistaxis from the left nasal cavity. On physical examination, the patient had an ulcerated mass in the left nasal vestibule and a biopsy showed a proliferation of spindle and epitheliod cells.[pagepress.org]
  • More common in adult men Average age at presentation is 55 - 65 years Rare in patients 40 years old Sites Maxillary sinus (60 - 70%), nasal cavity (12 - 25%), ethmoid sinus (10 - 15%), ethmoid and frontal sinuses (1%) Clinical features Nasal fullness, epistaxis[pathologyoutlines.com]
Excitement
  • More recently however, molecular-targeted therapies in the form of monoclonal antibodies have also entered the mix and are generating, as yet unproven, exciting prospects.[link.springer.com]

Workup

  • Routine investigations for metastatic workup were such as Ultrasonography of the abdomen and pelvis, chest X-ray was normal.[pubs.sciepub.com]

Treatment

  • The best outcome is most likely to be achieved by a multidisciplinary treatment approach.[link.springer.com]
  • Rhabdomyosarcoma of the nose and paranasal sinus: treatment results in 15 cases . Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2005 ; 133 : 42 – 50 . 6. Parham , DM , Barr , FG . Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma .[cambridge.org]
  • Treatment Options by Stage For information about the treatments listed below, see the Treatment Option Overview section.[cancer.gov]
  • This procedure is particularly useful assessing surgical treatment and should be performed whenever possible to exclude the malignant nature of the lesion and avoid over-treatment. All three patients underwent surgery and are alive and disease-free.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Age Younger people tend to have a better prognosis than older people. Sex Women may have a more favourable prognosis than men.[cancer.ca]
  • […] than those with maxillary sinus tumors Overall 5 year survival of nasal squamous cell carcinoma is 60% versus 42% for maxillary sinus tumor Prognosis usually correlates with tumor stage ( Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2007;133:131 ) Nonkeratinizing[pathologyoutlines.com]
  • prognosis compared with those with poor health Age of the individual: Older individuals generally have poorer prognosis than younger individuals Whether the tumor is occurring for the first time, or is a recurrent tumor.[dovemed.com]
  • It is no surprise that the prognosis would be worse in these cases.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Their prognosis varies considerably. Low grade tumors have an excellent prognosis while the outcome for high grade lesions is worse. Melanoma also arises in the nasal cavity mucosa, similar to the melanomas that occur on the skin.[ahns.info]

Etiology

  • Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology.[icd10coded.com]
  • Eventhough the main etiology of the disease is still unknown various factors contributing etiological factors include sulphur, tobacco, human papilloma virus infection (HPV types 6, 11, 16 and 18). [ 5 ] Most of the patients of inverted papilloma presents[pubs.sciepub.com]
  • The study, which utilized the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database, found that rhabdomyosarcoma was the most frequently occurring malignancy among patients below age 20 years. [4] Etiology Exposures to industrial fumes, wood dust[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • IPap is associated with synchronous or metachronous malignancy, usually squamous cell carcinoma (SCCa), in 5-7% of cases. 3 Human papilloma virus (HPV) has been implicated as a possible factor in the etiology of these lesions and certain types of HPV[appliedradiology.com]
  • (Etiology) Currently, scientists do not know the factor(s) causing Solitary Fibrous Tumor of Nasal Cavity and Paranasal Sinus Certain genetic mutations are have been detected.[dovemed.com]

  • Nationwide, 47 patients were identified from the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results database.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]
  • Definition / general Epithelial malignancy originating from sinonasal surface epithelium Terminology Two broad histologic subtypes: keratinizing and nonkeratinizing Epidemiology 3% of malignancies of head and neck; 1% of malignant neoplasms at all sites[pathologyoutlines.com]

  • Incidence/Epidemiology/Risk Factors: Cancers arising in the sinonasal cavity and the base of skull are extremely rare. It has been estimated that the incidence of sinonasal cancers is approximately 1/500,000 to 1/1,000,000 people.[ahns.info]

Pathophysiology

  • Of the research to date, the sonic hedgehog pathway, MYC and KDR genes are implicated for esthesioneuroblastoma. [3] [4] Mutations in dystrophin and Laminin, alpha 2 ( LAMA2 ) have also been implicated in this disease. [5] Pathophysiology [ edit ] Esthesioneuroblastoma[en.wikipedia.org]

Prevention

  • The tumor arises in the nasal cavity and paranasal sinus as a slow-growing mass The cause of formation of the tumor is unknown and currently, no known methods exist to prevent occurrence of the tumor Most small tumors are asymptomatic, though the larger[dovemed.com]
