Abstract


Inverted papilloma or Schneiderian papilloma arising primarily from middle ear and mastoid is a very rare entity. It is a benign and locally aggressive condition, with increased risk of recurrence and malignant transformation. Surgery is the primary treatment and radiation therapy should be considered in case of malignant transformation, recurrent or inoperable disease. Here we report a case of recurrent inverted papilloma with dysplastic changes arising from nasal cavity in a 56-year-old male. The patient was treated with surgery followed by radiotherapy.
