Pleomorphic adenoma of the nasal septum

J Laryngol Otol. 1999 May;113(5):483-5. doi: 10.1017/s0022215100144299.


Pleomorphic adenoma is the commonest benign tumour of the major salivary glands. It can also occur in minor salivary glands, mainly in the oral cavity, but also in other sites in the head and neck both within and outwith the upper aerodigestive tract. We present a rare case of pleomorphic adenoma of the nasal septum with consideration of the clinical management and a review of the literature.
