A malignant olfactory neuroblastoma arising from the olfactory epithelium of the superior nasal cavity and cribriform plate. It is uncommon (3% of nasal tumors) and rarely is associated with the production of excess hormones (e.g., SIADH, cushing syndrome). It has a high propensity for multiple local recurrences and bony metastases. (From Holland et al., Cancer medicine, 3rd ed, p1245; J Laryngol Otol 1998 Jul;112(7):628-33)
