Hamartoma is a rare, non-neoplastic tumour consisting of well
differentiated tissues typical to organ in which it arises but dislocated
within the tumour in a chaotic manner, often in abnormal
proportions. Hamartoma, and more specifically its epithelial
type, is classified into three subtypes: respiratory epithelial
adenomatoid hamartoma (REAH), seromucinous hamartoma
(SH) and mixed subtype.
The aim of this work was to report a case of REAH, which is
a very rare tumour, with special reference to histopathological
examination and surgical treatment.
A case of 56-year male patient operated earlier for polyps in the
nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses is reported. Histopathological
examination of the postoperative specimen revealed REAH.
Two-year follow-up after removal of the tumour from the
nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses did not show signs of tumour
REAH is a rare type of hamartoma diagnosed within nasal cavity
or paranasal sinuses. Its diagnosing relies solely on the result of
histopathological examinations. For treating REAH, surgery is
the method of choice.
