Tumors of the anterior skull base

Abstract: A variety of histologic tumor types are present in the anterior skull base. Primary tumors of this area may be derived from the bone, paranasal sinuses, nasopharynx, dura, cranial nerves, pituitary gland and brain. Symptoms are caused mostly through mass effect but, if the tumor becomes aggressive, also through invasion. Selection of surgical approaches to the anterior skull base is based upon balancing risk reduction with maximizing extent of resection. Here we review a spectrum of neoplastic entities found i… Show more

“…In surgery, it is used to diagnose malformations and tumors of blood vessels and to assess the relationship with large blood vessels. Interventional angiography is performed using the endovascular approach for preoperative embolization of vascular tumors (juvenile angiofibroma, hemangioma, and meningioma) [10,11].…”

“…Even prior to treatment, anterior cranial base malignancies can result in significant perturbations of patient QOL, affecting sinonasal QOL, HR-QOL, and global QOL. In fact, these perturbations are often how the tumor is detected and diagnosed, and largely relate to the mass effect the tumor has on adjacent cranial base and sinonasal structures [49]. Vision is commonly impacted due to the proximity of the optic chiasm, the optic nerves, the extraocular muscles, and the globe itself.…”

“…Rathke cleft cyst is also taken as the common differential diagnosis for the sellar mass as a congenital lesion (3). The importance of early diagnosis for lesions in this region has been highlighted because even these benign lesions may be progressive and unrelenting if situated in an area where growth cannot be controlled, and some of them could show aggressive behavior (4). Magnetic resonance (MR) scan is highly recommended for preoperative evaluation of the anterior skull base lesion owing to the advantage of excellent soft tissue resolution.…”
