Abstract: 

Sphenochoanal poyp is rare nasal mass that originates from sphenoid sinus. In anterior rhinoscopy it may be mistaken with antrochoanal polyp. CT of paranasal sinuses and nasal endoscopy has increased diagnostic accuracy. Simple polypectomy without removal of intra sinus mass is associated with increased risk of recurrence. Treatment of sphenochoanal polyp must include removal 0 f intrasphenoid part via enlargement of the sphenoid sinus ostium. At present time the choice of the surgical approach for sphenochoanal polyp is endoscopic sinus surgery. We introduce a case of sphenochoanal polyp and review its clinical, radiologic and pathologic findings and insist on endoscopic sinus surgery as a safe, effective treatment for it.
