Esthesioneuroblastoma (Olfactory neuroblastoma) is a rare malignant neoplasm arising from basal cells within the olfactory epithelium. Its clinical course is unpredictable with variable correlation between microscopic features and biological behaviour.[1] We report a very indolent case of olfactory neuroblastoma presented only with nasal obstruction due to  unilateral  mass at the anterolateral aspect of nasal ala of left side. The mass excised via lateral rhinotomy approach and diagnosis of olfactory neuroblastoma was established by histopathology.
