Primary tuberculosis of the nose is very rare. We report a case of a 35-year-old woman who presented with bilateral nasal obstruction and epistaxis of 3 months' duration but who was otherwise healthy. She was diagnosed with primary nasal septal tuberculosis and was treated with...

Nasal septal deviation in the pediatric and adult populations

March 1, 2011  |  Shari D. Reitzen, MD, Wayne Chung, MD, and Anil R. Shah, MD


A significant proportion of the population has nasal septal deviation of varying degrees. Recent reports of such deviation occurring at younger ages suggest a congenital etiology. To the best of our knowledge, no previous clinical studies have compared the septal deviation of...

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhea after a septoplasty procedure is very rare and potentially life-threatening. We present a case of iatrogenic postseptoplasty CSF rhinorrhea. To the best of our knowledge, only 2 other cases of CSF rhinorrhea complicating septoplasty have...

An asymptomatic schwannoma of the nasal septum: Report of a unique case

December 1, 2009  |  Fabio Pagella, MD, Georgios Giourgos, MD, Elina Matti, MD, and Andrea Colombo, MD


Schwannomas of the nasal septum are extremely rare, and therefore their diagnosis and treatment can pose certain challenges. We describe the case of an incidentally discovered schwannoma of the nasal septum that was unique in that the lesion was completely asymptomatic. In view...

Extranasopharyngeal angiofibroma of the nasal septum: A case report

November 1, 2009  |  Satyawati Mohindra, MS, DNB, Gogia Grover, MS, and Amanjit Kaur Bal, MD, DNB


Angiofibroma arising outside the nasopharynx is unusual. The nasal septum is an extremely rare site for the origin of angiofibroma, and to date only 6 such cases previously have been reported in the literature. We report here a case of a 22-year-old man with a vascular mass...

The nasal septum: An osteometric study of 16 cadaver specimens

August 1, 2009  |  Latha Venkatraya Prabhu, MBBS, MS, Anu Vinod Ranade, MSc, PhD, Rajalakshmi Rai, MSc, Mangala M. Pai, MBBS, MD, Arunachalam Kumar, MBBS, MS, Prakash Sinha, MBBS, MD, and Soubhagya Ranjan Nayak, MSc


Studies of the shape, dimensions, and other morphologic characteristics of the nasal septum are scant in the literature. We conducted a study of 16 male cadavers to measure six osseous components of the nasal septum and to calculate the proportional contribution that each made...

Three spontaneous occurrences of nasal septal abscess in patients with chronic asymptomatic HIV-the need for early intervention and reconstruction

August 1, 2009  |  Henry D. Sandel IV, MD and Steven P. Davison, MD, DDS


We identified 3 patients with chronic, asymptomatic HIV who presented between 2001 and 2005 with spontaneous nasal septal abscesses in the absence of previous trauma, nasal surgery, sinusitis, infection, or immunodeficiency. A MEDLINE search revealed no other cases of...

Chondrosarcoma of the nasal septum

January 1, 2009  |  Akram Rahal, MD, FRCSC, Joseph R. Durio, PA-C, and Michael L. Hinni, MD


Chondrosarcoma of the nasal septum is a rarely encountered malignancy. When it does occur, early diagnosis is difficult because patients generally present with common, nonspecific sinonasal complaints. We describe a case of chondrosarcoma of the nasal septum in a 38-year-old...
