Abstract:
Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma of the nasal septum. Background: Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is a tumour of vascular origin and unknown aetiology, which occurs in all age groups. The most common locations are the liver, bone, lungs, and brain, with less common occurrence in head and neck regions, and no prior reports of origination from nasal septum. Case report: Here we report a case of epithelioid hemangioendothelioma of the nasal septum. A 62-year-old male patient attended our clinic with epistaxis and congestion in his left nasal cavity. Endoscopic examination revealed a mass within the left nasal passage. Clinical and histopathological examinations showed that the mass was a septum-originated epithelioid hemangioendothelioma. The mass was removed endoscopically using a transnasal approach. Conclusions: No recurrence was observed over 36 months of follow-up. Here we discussed this uncommon case along with a literature review.
