Ganglioglioma is a tumor containing both astrocytic
and neuronal components. It may occur any where
in the central nervous system and spinal cord but is
only encountered rarely. Nasal glial heterotopia (also
known as nasal glioma), is a rare developmental
abnormality seen in a wide age group. Gangliogliomas
may also manifest as a nasal glial heterotopia, and
neurogenic tumors should be considered in the presence
of a nasal mass. In this article, we present a
case of ganglioglioma located in the right-nasal cavity.
The mass was excised totally through an endoscopic
approach. The ganglioglioma developed on
a nasal glial heterotopia base. To our knowledge, a
ganglioglioma arising from the nasal cavity has not
been described previously in the literature.
