What's your diagnosis?
I'll post the correct answer in about three days!
"Chantal SÃ©bire: Suffered from esthesioneuroblastoma, died through euthanasia"
Yes, it's an esthesioneuroblastoma.
It's a rare tumor in the nasal cavity, which probably arises from nasal epithelium. It's associated with trisomy 8 and can also cause loss of vision or taste.
This was a well-known patient from France who fought for the right of euthanasia, but unfortunately she lost her case in court. She then killed herself by taking an overdose of pentobarbital.
