Abstract

A primitive neuroectodermal tumor is a highly malignant, small, round-cell tumor characterized by a neuroectodermal origin and poor prognosis. These tumors are found in nervous tissue in children and adolescents. The thoracopulmonary region is known to be the most common site of this disease, and it is rare that a primitive neuroectodermal tumor would occur in the nasal cavity. We report a case of a primitive neuroectodermal tumor in the left nasal cavity with a review of relevant literature.
