Abstract

Tumors of the nasal and paranasal sinuses are uncommon, but some other diseases can mimic them. A 61-year-old woman presented at our clinic with a mass lesion in the right nasal cavity. After laser excision of the tumor, an implant penetrating into the middle of the tumor was observed. The pathology findings revealed acute and chronic inflammation. No malignancy was found and the patient was recommended to the regular outpatient department for follow-up.
