Abstract

Hamartoma occurs in all areas of the body, especially in the liver, spleen, kidney and lung. However, it was rarely reported in the nasal cavity, paranasal sinuses, or nasopharynx. The histopathological and clinical differential diagnosis of fibro-osseous hamartoma of the sinonasal tract includes ossifying fibroma, fibrous dysplasia and osteoma. We present the case of a 57-year-old man with nasal obstruction in right side, which was treated with complete resection by endoscopic approach. A combination of clinical, radiographic and histological information permitted a diagnosis of a benign fibro-osseous hamartoma in this case.
