Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Inverted papillomata usually rise from the mucosa of the nose and/or sinuses and present with signs and symptoms indistinguishable from those produced by ordinary nasal polyps. This benign neoplasm rarely arises from the nasolacrimal system or presents as an external mass. A case is described that demonstrated both these rare features. It is being reported to draw attention to the existence of this type of tumour and to illustrate its characteristic tendency to local recurrence. A brief review of the literature is given together with a recommended surgical approach.
