A thirty-year-old female presented with complaints of left-sided nasal obstruction for 1 year and pain over left side of nose on touch. Diagnostic nasal endoscopy of left nasal cavity showed a well-defined polypoidal lesion attached to the anterior end of middle turbinate and another polypoidal lesion near left middle meatus. CT showed well-defined soft-tissue density in the anterosuperior aspect of left nasal cavity. MRI showed a lesion which was isointense lesion on T1 and hyperintense on T2 in the left nasal cavity. Both the lesions were removed by endoscopic approach. Histopathological report of the lesions came out to be ancient schwannoma and neurofibroma, respectively.
