Abstract

Glomangioma is a painful, blue-red tumor that appears as a solitary encapsulated nodular mass, almost always on the skin. The first case of nasal glomangioma was reported in 1965. Since then, only 31 other cases have been reported in the literature. We present a new case of glomangioma of the nasal septum in a 61-year-old woman. The tumor was removed via an intranasal endoscopic excision. No recurrence was found at 3 years of follow-up. Our challenge was to distinguish the glomangioma from a true hemangiopericytoma and a paraganglioma.
