Abstract

We report the case of a 73-year-old woman, who presented with an inexplicable hyponatraemia associated with attention and vigilance disorders and slowing-down of psychomotorial function and speech. A CT brain scan showed a mass occupying the right sphenoidal sinus. The histological examination revealed that the lesion was an olfactory aesthesioneuroblastoma. The case is of interest because of the rarity of this neoplasm and its subtle, nonspecific clinical features, especially in the initial phases, which make diagnosis rather difficult.
