Congenital Os Vomer Agenesis: A Case Report

Congenital Os Vomer Agenesis: A Case Report

The os vomer forms the posteroinferior part of the nasal septum. Defects of the nasal septum can occur as a result of a variety of causes, including infection, irritation, trauma, iatrogenic factors, tuberculosis and neoplasia. Congenital os vomer agenesis is a very rare cause of nasal septal defects. Here, we report the case of a 14-year-old girl with agenesis of the os vomer. The patient presented with complaints of nasal obstruction. We discovered the septal defect on a routine endoscopic examination, and the diagnosis was confirmed by computed tomography. In this report, we present this patient’s case and review the literature on this rare anomaly.
