Dr. Swati B. Ghanghurde | Dr. Manjusha Dhawle

Abstract: The present study is a prospective study of 50 cases of non neoplastic and neoplastic lesions of the nose and paranasal sinuses, carried out in the department of pathology and ENT, in a tertiary care hospital between oct 2011 and oct 2013. This study was undertaken to study the frequency, age and sex wise distribution, correlate clinical and pathologic findings and to classify neoplastic and non neoplastic lesions of the nose and paranasal sinuses. Among 50 cases, 14 were neoplastic and 36 were nonneoplastic. Among the nonneoplastic lesions, nasal polyp was common, followed by rhinoscleroma, while in benign lesions papilloma was the commonest lesion followed by hemangioma, pleomorphic adenoma and neurofibroma. These benign tumours were seen in the 2nd, 4th and 7th decades of life, while for the malignant neoplasms the peak incidence was seen in the 6th and 7th decades of life. Nonneoplastic lesions were common in 2nd, 3rd, 4th decades of life. In all the lesions there was a female predominance.
