Abstract

Myoepithelioma is a rare benign neoplasm that mostly arises in the major salivary glands and sometimes in the minor salivary glands, which account only for less than 1% of all salivary glands neoplasms. However, its extra-salivary involvement is even rarer and only a few cases of nasal cavity myoepithelioma were reported in the English-language literature so far. In this case report, we present a 40-year-old female with unilateral nasal obstruction diagnosed as myoepithelioma of the nasal septum and treated with endoscopic sinus surgery.
