Abstract

Inverted papilloma of nasal cavity is a rare tumor which is most commonly seen in 5th to 7th decade. A case is described here occurring in a 55 year old male who presented with left nasal cavity obstruction and bleeding from the left nose. The patient underwent incisional biopsy from growth nasal cavity which was suggesting transitional cell papilloma with suggestion of malignant transformation following by which the patient underwent left side lateral rhinotomy. Microscopic findings established the diagnosis of transitional cell carcinoma. Patient was later treated by external beam radiation therapy of dose 60 Gy in 30 fractions to the local site. Twenty months after treatment completion patient is on regular follow up and disease free on clinical and radiological examination.
