Background: Osteomas are slow-growing, benign tumors that frequently occur in paranasal areas; are detected by their symptoms, depending on their location and size, or incidentally on radiologic examination; and rarely arise from the nasal bone. We present an isolated nasal bone osteoma-which has not, to our knowledge, been reported previously-that was excised using an endoscopic endonasal approach via intercartilaginous incision and reconstructed with MEDPOR.
