A Case of Neurilemmoma Arising from Nasal Septum: Transnasal Endoscopic Exicision

  • 1Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, Korea.


Neurilemmoma is characteristically an encapsulated benign tumor originating from the neural sheath of peripheral, autonomic, and cranial nerves. Whereas between 25% and 45% of all such lesions occur in the region of the head and neck, only 4% of them are found in the nose and paranasal sinuses. Recently, we experienced a case of isolated neuilemmoma of the nasal septum in a 33-year-old female patient who complained of nasal obstruction and postnasal drip over 1 year. The tumor mass was successfully removed by transnasal endoscopic excision under general anesthesia. The patient had an uneventful course with no signs of recurrence. We present our review of the clinicopathologic features, radiologic findings and the value of endoscopy in treatment of this tumor.
