Technological development in neuroendoscopy has lead to an expansion of its applications. The dimensions of a microsurgical approach to the brain can greatly be enlarged with the use of endoscope, making it possible to look behind structures and around corners. We performed an endoscopic assisted microsurgical decompression of an adenoid cystic carcinoma of paranasal sinus with intracranial sellar extension with good results.
