Abstract

Paragangliomas arising from the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses are extremely rare. Sinonasal paraganglioma causes repeated nasal bleeding, nasal stuffiness, headache and edema on the face. It occurs in the middle turbinate, lateral nasal wall, paranasal sinus and the roof of nasal cavity. Histopathologically, chief cells composing tumors are arranged in the "zellballen" pattern. Sinonasal paraganglioma is usually treated through radical surgical excision. We experienced a rare case of paraganglioma of the nasal cavity and treated it without recurrence through nasal endoscopic excision.
