Abstract

Leiomyoma is a benign tumor arising from smooth muscle cells. They are commonly found in the uterus, skin, and gastrointestinal tract. However, it is rare in the head and neck area. Especially, only 3% of leiomyomas in the head and neck area occur in the nasal cavity. Rhinologists need to know leiomyoma as a differential diagnosis of the tumors in the nasal cavity. Herein we present two cases of angioleiomyoma in the nasal cavity and review the literature.
