Esthesioneuroblastoma under Microscope

Esthesioneuroblastoma is a rare form of cancer involving the nasal cavity. It can cause loss of vision and taste. According to the BBC, there are only 200 cases of the disease that have been recorded worldwide in the past twenty years. Treatment typically involves severe surgical procedures and unfortunately recurrence rates remain high.
