Abstract:   (1453 Views)
Non-epithelial, benign extracranial neurogenic tumors of the nasal cavities are reported in the literature with extreme rarity. These tumors differ from the more common congenital gliomas, encephaloceles, etc. in that they sometimes are detached from the brain tissues. These tumors have intracranial origins. They are congenital or acquired and may involve any of the nerves inside the nose. These tumors can grow to quite a large size and in such cases, lateral rhinotomy is often necessary for complete excision.
