Respiratory epithelial adenomatoid hamartoma in the nasopharynx

  • R M Metselaar (a1), H V Stel (a2) and S van der Baan (a3)


We present a case report of a female patient with complaints of single-sided nasal obstruction. A polypoid structure was seen in the nasopharynx. Histologic examination showed a respiratory epithelial adenomatoid hamartoma – a rare, benign lesion. Therapy consisted of complete excision. In line with previous reports, the lesion did not recur during 13 months of follow up. The clinical and pathological features of this abnormality are discussed.
