Abstract. Low-grade nasal cavity adenocarcinoma is an unusual neoplasm. When it does occur, it often appears in conjunction with a history of epistaxis and nasal obstruction that spans a period of a few weeks to several months. Most of these tumors arise in patients who are middle-aged or older. We report a case of low-grade nasal cavity adenocarcinoma that was unusual in that it occurred in an adolescent boy and that the presenting symptoms of chronic nasal obstruction and recurrent epistaxis had persisted for 7 years.
