Case Report

Sinonasal glomangiopericytoma treated with preoperative embolisation and endoscopic sinus surgery

Sinonasal glomangiopericytoma is a benign rare tumour of pericytes that accounts for less than 0.5% of all sinonasal tumours. It is an indolent tumour with a macroscopic appearance of common inflammatory polyps.

We report the case of a 55-year-old male who presented with right nasal obstruction. CT and MRI examinations demonstrated a softtissue mass that obstructed mainly the right nasal cavity. Biopsy revealed glomangiopericytoma. The tumour was treated with preoperative embolisation followed by complete endoscopic resection. Very few cases have been reported to be treated in this way.
