Extracranial meningiomas are rare tumors that usually represent extensions from intracranial lesions. Here, we report a case of primary meningioma of the nasal septum. A 60-year-old man presented with nasal obstruction and postnasal drip. On examination he had a mass in the nasal cavity. Computed tomography studies revealed absence of intracranial extensions. The mass was successfully excised and the histologic diagnosis of meningioma was established. This report documents what we believe to be the first case (in English medical literature) of an extracranial meningioma, involving the nasal septum. The clinicopathologic features and pathogenesis of the primary nasal meningioma is briefly discussed.
