UNLABELLED Extracranial head and neck neurogenic tumors are rare and usually revealed by histological examination. The aim of this study was to review the clinical, radiological and therapeutic particularities of these tumors. METHODS This retrospective study concerns 47 patients with neurogenic tumors of the head and neck, operated on between 1989 and 2011 (22 years period). All patients had complete physical examination and ultrasonography was performed when a cervical extension was found…

Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumors (MPNST): The Mayo Clinic Experience
High tumor grade and tumor size ≥5 cm predict adverse DSS for MPNST in the context of a multidisciplinary treatment regimen, and local recurrence and survival outcomes at 5 and 10 years were better than previously reported for MPnST.
Parapharyngeal space tumors: 61 case reviews.
[A retrospective study about 11 cases of Esthesioneuroblastomas treated in Hospital Santa Creu i Sant Pau between 2000 and 2008 and literature review].
When the hystopathological diagnosis of ENB is considered, the Hyams classification can be valid considering grade IV as an advanced stage that is sometimes difficult to differentiate from other undiferentiated tumors.
Endoscopic treatment of esthesioneuroblastoma.
The literature suggests that outcomes after endoscopic resection are similar to those of the conventional external approach, and esthesioneuroblastoma is a potentially curable malignancy that helps reduce hospital costs and decrease the morbidity.

Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumour of the Maxilla
The present report underlines the locally aggressive nature of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour of the maxilla which necessitates an early therapeutic intervention and suggests adjuvant radiotherapy may be considered to improve the local control.
Esthesioneuroblastoma, Neuroendocrine Carcinoma, and Sinonasal Undifferentiated Carcinoma: Differentiation in Diagnosis and Treatment
There are significant differences in prognosis and treatment for esthesioneuroblastoma, neuroendocrine carcinoma, and sinonasal undifferentiated carcinoma.
Tumours of the parapharyngeal space
High resolution computed tomography is now the best initial diagnostic study because it helps to determine the size and extent of the tumour, differentiate tumours of parotid and extraparotid origin, demonstrate degree of tumour vascularity, separate benign from malignant lesions, plan the surgical approach and predict prognosis.
