Intranasal granuloma faciale

Am J Otolaryngol. 1983 May-Jun;4(3):184-6. doi: 10.1016/s0196-0709(83)80041-6.


A 49-year-old man had a recurring intranasal mass accompanied by erythematous plaques on the forehead. Biopsy specimens of the skin and intranasal mass led to a diagnosis of granuloma faciale, a rare benign skin disorder. Lateral intranasal location and associated facial lesions help to clinically differentiate this lesion from more ominous midline granulomatous diseases. The lesions were treated with intralesional steroid injections. This may be the first reported intranasal occurrence of granuloma faciale.
