Pleomorphic adenomas of the nasal cavity are rare. We describe the case of a middle-aged white man who presented to our clinic with a long history of unilateral nasal obstruction. Preoperative imaging was performed, and the patient was taken to the operating room for endoscopic excision of the lesion. Surgical margins were negative. The patient's nasal obstruction resolved, and he was doing well at his first postoperative visit. The pathologic diagnosis was a pleomorphic adenoma. We discuss the features and management of this entity.
