Keywords: choanal polyp; nasal obstruction; middle turbinate
Choanal polyps can be defined as benign, solitary, inflammatory soft tissue masses, that extends towards the nasal cavity and the nasopharynx. Unusual origins such as the sphenoid sinus, ethmoid sinus, nasal septum, hard and soft palate have been reported in the literature. This report describes a polyp that arose from the middle turbinate and extended through the choana into the nasopharynx and removed by an endoscopic surgery technique. The computed tomographic findings are described and the literature is reviewed.
