Abstract

Glomus tumor is a benign tumor, which is believed to represent hyperplasia or harmatomatous development of the glomus body. It is relatively rare in the head and neck region, especially in the nasal cavity. Up to now, only about twenty cases of glomus tumor in the nasal cavity have been reported. We report a case of glomus tumor originating from the anterior portion of nasal septum, which was treated by local excision.
