Abstract
Schwannomas of the nasal cavity are extremely rare. We evaluated a 42-year-old woman who presented with a 4-year history of slowly progressive nasal obstruction. The cause of the obstruction was identified as a schwannoma in the left inferior turbinate. The tumor was completely excised, and no sign of recurrence was evident at the 1-year follow-up. To the best of our knowledge, this is only the third case of a schwannoma originating in the inferior nasal turbinate that has been reported in the English-language literature. We review the clinical and pathologic features of this case.

Schwannoma of the true vocal fold: A rare diagnosis

Abstract
Schwannomas of the larynx are rare, benign, slowly growing tumors. When they do occur, they are most often isolated in the aryepiglottic folds or false vocal folds. When a tumor originates in the larynx, it typically causes hoarseness and a globus sensation. As the tumor expands, it may cause dyspnea, stridor, and possibly asphyxiation as a result of the mass effect. In this article, we report an unusual case of a schwannoma of the true vocal fold in a young woman.

article
Abstract
To the best of our knowledge, only 3 cases of a simultaneous vestibular schwannoma and a glomus jugulare tumor have been previously reported in the literature. In all 3 cases, the lesions were located on the same side. We report a new case of simultaneous vestibular schwannoma and glomus jugulare tumor that is unique in that the two lesions arose on opposite sides. The glomus tumor was treated with embolization followed by radiotherapy, while the schwannoma was managed via radiologic observation.
