A Rare Sinonasal Tumour: Inverted Papilloma & Its Resection Using Endoscopic Approach

Satpinder Kaur | Vishal Salhotra

Abstract: Background: Inverted Schneidarian Papilloma is a fairly rare benign tumour of the nasal cavity. Even if this type of tumour is included in the category of benign tumours, it has an increased invasion potential and an increased tendency for malignization. Case report: We present the case of a 62 years-old male patient diagnosed with sinonasal tumour. Our evaluation and diagnostic protocol consisted in: ENT clinical examination, nasal endoscopy, and CT scan. The treatment consisted in total removal of the tumour through endoscopic sinus surgery. The positive diagnosis was confirmed postoperatively by histopathological examination. Our patient showed favourable outcome under the treatment applied pre; intra- and postoperatively. Conclusion: we believe that the transnasal endoscopic approach is a successful treatmentmethod, but rigorous preoperative clinical, endoscopic and imaging assessment is mandatory; also the technical equipment, surgical abilities and experience of the surgeon are essential to ensure better results than those obtained by an external approach.
