Abstract: Outpatient department of Otorhinolaryngology is flooded with patients presenting with complains involving sinonasal tract. The skill to identify the symptoms, diagnose the condition and plan appropriate management is of paramount importance to treating physician. This prospective study was carried out with 113 patients in tertiary care hospital, Central India from July 2020 to July 2022. All patients with nasal obstruction underwent clinical examination & radiological investigations. Those with masses were selected, histopathological diagnosis was done. They were stratified under different diagnoses, treated accordingly and data was analysed. Non neoplastic lesions were more commonly seen in the age group of 30-40 years, while benign lesions in the age group of 10-20 years. Malignant lesions were seen more commonly in the elderly age group of 60-70 years, closely followed by the age group of > 70 years. This was statistically significant. Male to female ratio was 1.3: 1.53.09% had non neoplastic lesions. The rest had benign 21.23% and malignant 25.66% lesions. Amongst non neoplastic lesions, almost all patients (51.32%) had sinonasal polyposis. Majority of patients amongst the benign neoplastic diseases in this study (21.23%) were diagnosed with JNA (15.04%). Ca Maxilla was found in 14.15% of patients. Majority of patients 74.33% underwent surgical excision endoscopically. Majority of patients 94.69% were found to be disease free at the end of follow-up interval of 1 month.
