Abstract

Chondro-osseous respiratory epithelial adenomatoid hamartomas (COREAHs) are benign entities that are rarely present within the nasal cavity but to date have only been identified in nasal polyp-like masses. This report represents the first case published with a COREAH causing epistaxis. Although these are benign lesions which are nearly 100% curable with simple surgical excisions, they remain rare and are not commonly thought of in the differential of nasal masses or as hemorrhagic lesions. Further, the patient reported here is the oldest reported and has a unique presentation.
