Abstract


Objectives: Sinonasal masses affect people of all age groups and cause significant impairment of quality of life. The present study aimed to assess the clinico-pathological profile of patients presenting with sino-nasal masses and emphasize the role and importance of pre-operative histopathology of their sino-nasal masses. Methods: Fifty five patients (10 - 68 years age) presenting to a tertiary care centre in Gurugram, Haryana with sino-nasal masses over the course of 3 years were included in a retrospective analysis. All masses were sent for histopathological examination for final diagnosis prior to surgical intervention. Results: The most common presenting complaint was nasal obstruction (38%). Ninety percent of sino-nasal masses were found to be benign, of which, nasal polyp (40%) was the most common biopsy finding. Amongst malignant lesions, squamous cell carcinoma (60%) was the most common histological type. Conclusion: Correlation of clinical and histopathological finding is of utmost importance for accurate and timely diagnosis of sino- nasal masses. It will enable prompt and better management of these patients, which will decrease morbidity and mortality associated with sino-nasal masses.
