An unusual localization of fungiform papilloma

Emine Aydın1, Eren Taştan, Filiz Aydoğan, Muzaffer Çaydere

In this article, we presented a 54-year-old male who
was admitted with complaints of nasal obstruction
with snoring and mouth breathing for one year.
Anterior rhinoscopy revealed a mass arising from the
inferior nasal concha on the left side. After computed
tomography evaluation, endoscopic examination
and incisional biopsy, the mass was removed en
bloc endoscopically. The histopathological analysis
resulted in a diagnosis of a fungiform papilloma.
Fungiform papillomas arise almost exclusively on the
nasal septum, while inverted papillomas predominantly
affect the lateral nasal wall. To our knowledge,
no previous report of fungiform papilloma involving
the inferior concha has been published in the English
literature.
