Necrotizing granulomatous nodules are a common feature in patients with rheumatoid disease, affecting 20 per cent of seropositive patients.

In the upper aerodigestive tract, nodules have been described in diverse locations, but commonly in the trachea, larynx and the ear. We present the first reported case of a rheumatoid nodule affecting the nasal septum.
