Non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas of the nose and paranasal sinuses: a case report

Tolga Kandoğan1, Levent Olgun, Levent Aydar, Özlem Sezgin

Primary Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) of the nasal
cavity is a rare neoplasm. They account for about
0.17-2% of all cases of NHL and 5.8% of all malignant
neoplasms of the sinonasal region in the adult.
A 37- year old male patient presented with left sided
nasal obstruction and headache for a couple of
weeks before the admission. Nasal examination
revealed a massive poliposis. After medical therapy
with corticosteroid, neither the polyposis nor his
complaints showed any regression thus he underwent
a nasal polypectomy operation. Biopsy results
indicated an inflammatory nasal polyp. 2 weeks
later, a rapidly progressive facial swelling, especially
in left periorbital area and blurred vision occured.
Second biopsy, which was also taken from left nasal
cavity suggested again an inflammatory nasal polyp.
To rule out any possible malignancy a third biopsy
was conducted on the left maxillary sinus which indicated
“T/NK cell lymphoma” of the sinonasal tract.
