Most nasal cavity polyps develop from the mucosa of the anterior ethmoid sinus, the contact areas of the uncinate process, and the middle turbinates.

A 69-year-old woman with a 1-year history of slowly progressive left nasal obstruction was referred to our hospital. She had no other health problems.
