Abstract


Abstract: Aim of the study was to evaluate the differential diagnosis of polypoid sino nasal mass. Seventy four numbers of patient attended ENT department of a tertiary level hospital with sinonasal mass with or without nasal discharge. All the cases presented with polypoid mass and underwent surgical intervention. Ten percent formalein fixed specimens were sent to the histopathology section for biopsy interpretation. Among them, 47 cases (63.51%) showed non- neoplastic change and comprised of nasal polyp. Twenty seven cases (36.49%) were diagnosed to have neoplastic lesion. Angiofibroma was the commonest tumour . Three cases of malignant tumours was also detected. It is a hospital based study which might not reflect the exact scenario of the pattern of sinonasal mass in population at large. It is the limitation of the study. However, it should be stated that all sinonasal lesions need histopathological examination for proper diagnosis and follow up of patients.
