2) The nasal glioma
first described by Schmidt in 1900.
is a congenital benign tumour like condition composed of heterotropic neural tissue within the nasal region.
is a rare benign tumor that usually occurs during infancy.
Nasal masses in infancy are infrequently encountered, and most of them are developmental anomalies, such as encephalocele, nasal glioma
, hamartoma, and nasolacrimal duct cyst.
Exclusion Criteria: Patients presenting with congenital sino nasal mass, sino nasal mass of intracranial origin such as basal meningocoele, basal meningoencephalocoele, and nasal glioma
Amin et al state that most eases of nasal glioma
that have been reported in the literature have occurred in:
Nasal glial heterotopia, also called nasal glioma
, is a rare developmental abnormality, which is probably related to congenital encephalocele.
1,2) The most common congenital nasal masses are nasal dermal sinus cysts, nasal encephaloceles, and nasal gliomas
CONCLUSION: The nasal glioma
is a congenital CNS malformation in which there is anterior displacement of cerebral tissue that has lost their intracranial connection.
With which of the following statements regarding a nasal glioma
would Restrepo et al (Imaging Clinic) disagree?
In this article, we describe a case of a nasal glioma
that was removed via a lateral rhinotomy.
