Sinonasal (Schneiderian) papillomas are benign neoplasms that arise in the sinonasal tract. Since their initial descriptions, sinonasal papillomas have triggered debate regarding their classification, etiology, rate or predictors of malignant transformation, and other issues. While significant strides have been made in recent years, there are still aspects of sinonasal papillomas that remain unclear even now. This review will serve to update the practicing pathologist on the current understanding of sinonasal papillomas...

Population-based cancer registries allow for data collection on the scale of large populations, outside the limits of a single institution, and facilitate study of rare entities. The SEER database has been used to study more than 7000 cases encompassing a wide variety of relatively rare sinonasal malignant histologies. Clinically useful parameters have been gleaned from these analyses. Important limitations, such as omission of chemotherapy data, surgical approach used, type of radiation administered, and selection and confounding bias, should be considered...

Cancers develop secondary to genetic and epigenetic changes that provide the cell with a survival advantage that promotes cellular immortality. Malignancy arises when tumors use mechanisms to evade detection and destruction by the immune system. Many malignancies seem to elicit an immune response, yet somehow manage to avoid destruction by the cells of the immune system. Cancers may evade this immune response by numerous mechanisms. Several targeted immune therapies are available that block some of these inhibitory signals and enhance the cell-mediated immune response...

Over the past 2 decades, there has been a significant increase in the resection of larger and more complex ventral skull base malignancies. The resection of these lesions has resulted in the creation of larger and more difficult to repair skull base defects. There are many available options for ventral skull base reconstruction. Despite the variety of reconstructive options, the key objective is to eliminate any communication between the intracranial space and the sinonasal cavity. This article discusses some of the more common techniques currently used for repair of these skull base defects...

Over the past decade, robotic surgery has gained wide popularity, making a significant impact on multiple surgical specialties. In the head and neck arena, transoral robotic surgery has proven to be safe and associated with acceptable oncological and superior functional outcomes for surgery of the oropharynx, hypopharynx, supraglottis, and glottis; thus, changing the paradigm for the management of tumors in these anatomic locations. Robotic surgery of the ventral skull base is at an early stage of development...

Cavernous sinus (CS) involvement by sinonasal and ventral skull base malignancies is infrequently encountered in neurosurgical practice. Despite advancements in skull base microneurosurgery and endoscopic techniques, detailed knowledge and experience of the surgical management of these lesions are limited. This article elaborates on surgical strategies and approaches for CS involvement of malignant ventral skull base tumors. The article discusses the indications, techniques, nuances, advantages, limitations, and complications of minimally invasive CS biopsy, transcranial microscopic, and transfacial endoscopic approaches to the CS using illustrative diagrams and operative videos...

The orbit may be frequently involved by sinonasal or ventral skull base malignancy. This involvement bodes a poorer prognosis for survival. Multimodality therapy with surgery and radiation therapy is usually attempted to optimize local control and overall survival. Oncologic surgical resection with negative margins is critical to local control and survival. In the past, any involvement of the orbit was deemed to necessitate orbital sacrifice. However, contemporary studies show that in carefully selected cases, orbital preservation does not adversely impact survival...

Combined transcranial and endoscopic endonasal approaches remain useful in the treatment of ventral skull base malignancies. The extended bifrontal transbasal approach provides wide access to the anterior ventral skull base and paranasal sinuses without transfacial incisions. In more extensive lesions, the bifrontal transbasal approach can then be combined with an endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA) from below. This article reviews the indications, surgical technique, and operative nuances of combined transbasal and EEA (cranionasal) approaches for the surgical management of ventral skull base malignancies...

Tremendous pathologic diversity among sinonasal and ventral skull base malignancies complicates development of a uniform and prognostically relevant staging system. Because of the comparatively low incidence of these tumors, comprehensive evaluation and comparison of specific staging systems is difficult. The current American Joint Committee on Cancer TNM staging system for sinonasal malignancies is the most common and widely used system in current clinical practice. Alternative systems have been proposed for use with individual histopathologic subtypes...

A wide variety of tumors present in the sinonasal and ventral skull base. Patients often have nonspecific symptoms initially and present with advanced tumors, affecting the orbit and other adjacent structures. Evaluation of these malignancies with modern imaging techniques can define tumor invasion, but biopsy is often required to establish a diagnosis because most have a nonspecific appearance. A thorough understanding of the anatomy is the key to treatment planning, and a multidisciplinary approach determines the optimal strategy...

BACKGROUND: Human papilloma virus (HPV) infection has been shown to play an integral role in the development and prognosis of various head and neck cancers. Generational changes in sexual behavior may have led to an increased incidence of positivity in recent years. HPV positivity in both benign and malignant lesions of the sinonasal cavities has been shown in previous studies (estimates range from 20%-30% for malignancy). We intend to investigate if HPV positivity affected survival outcomes in our patient cohort...

Inverted papilloma is a rare, benign sinonasal tumor. Its etiology is the most likely related to HPV infection. Inverted papilloma originates from the ciliated respiratory epithelium, typically from the lateral nasal wall. The tumor is characterized by endophytic growth inwards the stroma with adjacent tissues destruction. The clinical symptoms are non-specific, such as: unilateral obstruction of the nasal duct, rhinorrhoea, epistaxis and anosmia. The treatment consists in a complete surgical excision of the tumor...

Purpose. Sinonasal malignant mucosal melanoma is a rare, aggressive tumour. Nasal obstruction and epistaxis are the most commonly reported symptoms, although symptomatology may develop late and be nonspecific, which tends to delay diagnosis, resulting in a poorer prognosis. Case Report. This report describes a 64-year-old male patient with nasal obstruction and epistaxis. Computed tomography of the facial sinuses revealed a large lesion in the right nasal cavity, with infiltration into the left cavity, ethmoidal cells, and erosion of the cribriform plate...
