Only septal deviation? : a tiny schwannoma in the nasal septum

Author

Abstract
Schwannoma of nasal septum presentation is exceedingly rare in the literature, previously reported multiple lesions involving the paranasal sinuses or nasal mucosa. We report the case of a 20 year-old yellow male with a tiny schwannoma arising from the nasal septum, complaining of lightly alternate nasal obstruction. Both anterior and endo-rhinoscopy didn't detect this tiny smooth-surfaced mass and other abnormality, except a little septal deviation. After final clinical diagnosis, we completely removed this tumor and corrected the deviation by an endoscopic approach. We discuss the clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, pathologic diagnosis factor and therapy of this rarely encountered neoplasm.
