We report two unique cases of 50- and 28-year-old Turkish men with coincidence of conchachoanal polyp and mulberry hypertrophy of the inferior concha. We operated on both cases with endoscopic stripping of the polypoid tissue while preserving the periosteum and healthy mucosa of the inferior nasal concha. The polypoid tile of the left inferior nasal concha was resected in the case with mulberry hypertrophy at only the tail of the concha. Both cases reported significant relief of symptoms after the operations.
