Abstract

Septochoanal polyp is a rare entity in the nasal septum. This type of polyp can extend into the choana to cause nasal obstruction and snoring, similar to the symptoms of an antrochoanal polyp. Septochoanal polyps may therefore be confused with antrochoanal polyps because of their similar appearances. The authors report a case of a seven-year-old boy who was diagnosed with a septochoanal polyp. The patient was successfully treated via an endoscopic surgical approach.
