The complexity of tumors extending to the skull base compartments is technically demanding for maximum visualization, control of the vital structures, adequate tumor resection and/or reconstruction. Management of such widely extending tumors requires a team approach and close co-operation between the neurosurgeon, maxillofacial surgeon, oto-rhino-laryngologist and ophthalmic surgeon. This article emphasizes on the role of maxillofacial surgeon in the surgical planning of such extensively involving tumors via facial translocation.
