Abstract

Organizing hematomas are rare benign tumors and appear as forms of mass which is composed of neovascularization with organizing fibrous tissue in hematoma. There have been sporadic reports of the organizing hematoma not only in soft tissue but also in brain, spinal cord, lung, and maxillary sinus. We report a case of organizing hematoma that was restricted in the nasal cavity without inclusion of the paranasal sinus. This is the first article describing the organizing hematoma of the nasal septum. We present this case with a review of literature.
