Cancerous nasal cavity or sinus tumors are rare, with only about 2,000 being diagnosed in the United States each year. Men are more likely to get sinus cancer than women. The most common age for diagnosis of the condition is in the 50s and 60s. Smoking is a major risk factor for nose and sinus cancer. Exposure to various substances and vapors also may play a role Various types of diseases can involve the nasal vestibule. Diagnosis and treatment of a nasal vestibular mass is often challenging due to the anatomical features of the nasal vestibule. Here, we present four cases with nasal vestibular masses. Two cases were diagnosed as squamous papillomas. The oth The nasal mass was completely removed via an endonasal endoscopic approach. Microscopically, the mass consist of a pure population of plasma cells with small, round, and eccentric nucleus, abundant basophilic cytoplasm and perinuclear halo. Few binucleated or multinucleated tumor cells are identified (Figure 2A, 2B). The immunohistochemical. Mucositis (Thickenedmucousmembrane) The normal mucosal lining of the para nasal sinus is composed of respiratory epithelium and is approximately 1mm thick, and is not visualized on the radiograph Symptoms of a nasal mass include epistaxis, pain, facial pressure, and nasal obstruction- the most common presenting symptom2. Tumor growth is slow and a 6-12 month delay diagnosis after onset of symptoms is common. Lymph node metastasis is rare at initial presentation (5-10%)3

METHODS: Case report and literature review concerning successful management of recurrent extracranial meningioma based on pathology and extent of resection. RESULTS: A 48-year-old woman who presented with a nasal mass, anosmia and headaches Inflammatory or allergic sinonasal polyps are characterized by extensive vascular growth and ectasia with deposition of pseudoamyloid in 5% of cases. Angiomatous nasal polyp (ANP) is a relatively rare benign lesion, which may be misdiagnosed as a benign or malignant tumor. The characteristic pathological features of ANP are expanded angiogenesis, accumulation of extracellular amorphous.
Nasal Septum. Development of the nose and the nasal cavities occurs between 3 and 10 weeks of gestation (, 2 3).The nasomedial processes fuse in the midline with the frontal prominence, and the result is the formation of the frontonasal process, which gives origin to the columella, philtrum, upper lip, nasal bones, cartilaginous nasal capsule, and midline superior alveolar ridge (, 2) The nasal passage and paranasal sinuses (collectively sinonasal) plays host to a number of diseases and conditions, which can be collectively termed sinonasal disease.

The post-operative cavity is shown in the right hand picture Carcinoma of the maxillary sinus usually remains asymptomatic for a long period of time. 1 Eventually, the tumor grows to fill the sinus and the diagnosis is made because the lesion has produced a bulge of the palatal or alveolar ridge area. This is a tumor usually associated with elderly patients. 1. Squamous cell carcinoma from the soft. CT angiography performed with a bolus-tracking technique after injecting 60-80 mL of intravenous iodinated contrast material at a rate of 3-5 mL/sec can be used to assess the relationship of the ICA to cavernous sinus mass lesions and in the evaluation of suspected vascular lesions of the cavernous sinus such as aneurysm, carotid-cavernous.
Nasal cyst or nasal cyst is a pathological formation in the nasal cavity. It's considered abnormal, but not malignant. A sinus cyst looks like a small container that is filled with a liquid substance. Typically, cyst formation occurs in the paranasal sinus.

On examination the patient has an inverted papilloma in the right nasal cavity with a CT scan demonstrating an attachment of the bone along the skull base (Image 1). MRI confirmed the mass did not go into the frontal. Summary. Nasal papillomas are benign epithelial tumors of the nasal cavity which mainly affect males between 40-60 years of age. The exact etiology is unknown, but human papillomavirus infection, smoking, and chronic sinusitis are predisposing factors for the development of nasal papillomas. There are three types of nasal papillomas. Inverted papilloma is the most common, arises from the. Preoperative diagnosis: Mass on larynx Postoperative diagnosis: Pending pathology report Procedure: Laryngoscopy The patient was prepped and draped in the usual fashion and placed in the supine position. The operating table was turned to 90 degrees, and a donut headrest was used for stabilization. Mirrors were placed for indirect visualization PATHOLOGIC FEATURES. An excision biopsy was performed to remove the nasal mass from the septum. The excised specimen consisted of two irregular polypoidal bits of tissue measuring 3 cm × 2 cm × 1 cm mixed with a blood clot, and another bit measuring 2.5 cm × 2 cm × 1 cm .On the cut surface, gelatinous mucinous-like material was found
Nasal glial heterotopia refers to congenital malformations of displaced normal, mature glial tissue, which are no longer in continuity with an intracranial component. This is distinctly different from an encephalocele, which is a herniation of brain tissue and/or leptomeninges, that develops through a defect in the skull, where there is a continuity with the cranial cavity Unilateral sinonasal symptoms, nasal mass or polyp or sinus opacity are common presentations in the otolaryngological department. The aetiology is usually an inflammatory condition which can be managed conservatively with medical treatment with few patients requiring surgical intervention .The presence of unilateral symptoms or pathology is regarded with caution as sinonasal neoplasms may. 1.

A CSS is caused by any pathology or lesion present within the cavernous sinus that disrupts the function of other anatomical structures. The most common cause of CSS is mass effect from tumor. Other common causes of CSS include trauma and self-limited inflammatory disease. Less common causes are vascular etiologies and infections A nasopharyngeal polyp is a pinkish-white mass of tissue that grows from the back of the throat, Eustachian tube (the small tube that drains the middle ear into the throat) or the middle ear itself. Inflammation of the lining of one of these areas causes the tissue to become thick. Sometimes the mass will actually grow into an organized, round. Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), or nasopharynx cancer, is the most common cancer originating in the nasopharynx, most commonly in the postero-lateral nasopharynx or pharyngeal recess (fossa of Rosenmüller), accounting for 50% of cases.NPC occurs in children and adults. NPC differs significantly from other cancers of the head and neck in its occurrence, causes, clinical behavior, and treatment

Case Discussion. Endoscopic biopsy and FNAC of the left parotid mass: Nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Radiological stage: T4,N3b,Mx. The extension of the tumor to involve the masticator space makes this a T4 tumor. The supraclavicular nodes makes this a N3b (the highest nodal stage) This report describes a case of cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection of the nasopharynx. A 47 year old man presented with a nasopharyngeal mass of one month's duration. The patient had a history of pneumonia one month previously. Sinus computed tomography incidentally picked up a nasopharyngeal mass. The initial biopsy showed lymphoid hyperplasia Gross examination of the left nasal cavity showed a polypoid tumor. Imaging modalities, including computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, showed a mass in the left maxillary sinus and nasal cavity. A large incisional biopsy sample (2 × 2 × 1 cm) was obtained from the nasal cavity Nasopharyngeal angiofibroma. Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma are benign neoplasm consisting of vascular and fibrous tissue. The resected angiofibroma as shown here is a large, single, sessile, red-pinkish mass that previously occupied the nasopharynx. Angiofibromas can also be pedunculated or polypoid If you're having symptoms that might be from a nasal cavity or paranasal sinus cancer, you could still need other tests to find the cause of the symptoms. FNA biopsies might also be useful in some patients already diagnosed with nasal cavity or paranasal sinus cancer. If the person has a lump in the neck, an FNA can show if the mass is cancer
