About the Study

A 44-year-old chronic smoker presented with complaint of left nasal blockage for three months. The symptoms were accompanied by pain and blood-stained discharge. There were no eye symptoms or dental pain. An anterior rhinoscopy examination revealed a pinkish fleshy multilobulated mass extending through the left nostril (Figure 1). The mass was fully occupying the left nasal cavity until the posterior choanae. Examination of the right side of the nose and oropharynx was normal. We proceeded with a biopsy of the anterior nasal mass of which histopathological examination revealed inverted papilloma. For this patient, the differential diagnosis includes sinonasal inflammatory polyps, nonkeratinizing respiratory carcinoma and verrucous carcinoma [1-4].
