Abstract

ROCHA, Mauren P. et al. Pleomorphic adenoma of the nasal septum: a case report. Rev. Bras. Otorrinolaringol. [online]. 2004, vol.70, n.3, pp.416-418. ISSN 0034-7299.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-72992004000300020.

Nasal tumours are very rare. The neoplasms most frequently seen in the nasal cavity are epithelial papillomas, angiomas, transitional cells carcinoma, pavement carcinoma and adenocarcinoma. The pleomorphic adenoma belongs to the group of tumours less commonly observed in the nasal cavity, and is the most common head and neck benign glandular tumour. The typical clinical presentation of the nasal pleomorphic adenoma is of unilateral nasal obstruction, epistaxis and a painless mass in the nasal cavity. The authors reported an adenoma pleomorphic case that highlights itself by its unusual nasal presentation in the nasal septum of a 45-year-old male patient who was submitted to surgical treatment, and discuss the clinical findings, diagnostic criteria, treatment, prognosis and literature review.

Keywords : pleomorphic adenoma; nasal cavity; mixed tumour.
