Pleomorphic adenoma originates mainly in major salivary glands such as the parotid and submandibular glands, but has rarely been reported to arise in the nasal cavity, especially the nasal septum. Diverse surgical approaches can be selected according to the size and location of the tumor.The treatment of choice for intranasal pleomorphic adenoma is complete surgical excision with histologically clear margin in order to prevent recurrence. However, endoscopic surgical excision has the benefits of superior visualization of the tumor margin, avoidance of external scar, and less blood loss. We report herein a case of a 48-year-old woman who presented with a seven-monthhistory of right-sided nasal obstruction and intermittent nasal bleeding, diagnosed as pleomorphic adenoma of the nasal septum, that was treated with endoscopic surgery without any recurrence.
