      <ArticleTitle>Unilateral Nasal Obstruction by Respiratory Epithelial Adenomatoid Hamartoma</ArticleTitle>
      <Abstract>Respiratory epithelial adenomatoid hamartoma is a rare benign tumour involving the nasal cavity, paranasal sinuses or rhinopharynx. The tumour most often arises from the posterior part of the nasal septum.&#13;
We report a case of nasal obstruction throughout a 25-30 year period in a 74-year-old woman caused by a respiratory epithelial adenomatoid hamartoma originating from the uncinate process. The tumour was surgically excised whereby dramatically improving air passage through the nose.&#13;
Biopsies from pathologies in the nasal cavity is important to get a definite diagnosis and distinguish benign from malignant tumours. A biopsy verified diagnosis of REAH is important prior to plan the extent of surgical excision of this benign lesion to avoid unnecessary aggressive surgery and associated complications such as anosmia, orbital or skull base trauma with risk of orbital haematoma, blindness, cerebrospinal fluid leak and meningitis.</Abstract>
