March 19, 2014  |  Shruti Dhingra, MS, DNB; Jaimanti Bakshi, MS, DNB; Satyawati Mohindra, MS, DNB

Abstract

Schwannomas of the nasal cavity are rare benign tumors, and those that arise from the nasal septum are even rarer. When they do occur, they usually become symptomatic early because of the close confines of the nasal cavity. We describe a case of nasal septal schwannoma that was...
