Abstract

Angioleiomyoma is a benign myogenic tumor that may develop wherever smooth muscle is present. It occurs commonly in the uterus, skin, and gastrointestinal tract and is rare within the nasal cavity, but only three of 24 reported cases of sinonasal leiomyoma may have originated from the nasal septum. Treatment of choice for these neoplasms is surgical excision. We present one case of nasal septal angioleiomyoma arising from the nasal septum with symptoms of nasal obstruction and epistaxis, which were successfully removed by endoscopic surgery.
