Benign fibrohistiocytoma is a very rare tumor in the head and neck. There has never before been a reported case of this tumor originating from the nasal vestibule. Recently, we experienced a case of benign fibrohistiocytoma on the nasal vestibule in a 12-year-old boy who complained of nasal obstruction and recurrent epistaxis. During physical examination, we found a 1x1 cm-sized mass on his right nasal vestibule. Excision and repair with full thickness skin graft was performed and diagnosis of benign fibrohistiocytoma was made with pathologic and clinical findings. We present this rare case with review of the clinical and pathological features.
