Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Vascular leiomyoma is an uncommon smooth muscle tumor rarely found in the head and neck area. We report the first case arising for the superior turbinate of the nasal cavity.

METHODS:

A case presentation, treatment, and review of the literature are discussed.

RESULTS:

Twenty-one months after embolization and surgical resection, the patient is doing well, without evidence or recurrence.

CONCLUSIONS:

Vascular leiomyoma is a rare benign tumor of the nasal cavity, and surgical excision yields high cure rates.
