Abstract: 

 

Nose and paranasal sinuses tumors are rare but their clinical signs and symptom's are nonspecific and their diagnosis usually established with delay. The purpose of this study was determination of epidemiological status of these tumors in Hamadan.
Patients' records in Hamadan hospitals' file were reviewed from 1991 to 1998 retrospectively.
Over all, 44 patients with these tumors were evaluated. In 81.4% nasal cavity and in 15.9% maxillary sinus were original site of tumor. Chief complaints in decreasing order of frequency were epistaxis, unilateral nasal obstruction, pain in the region of face and nose and rhinorrhea. The most common malignant and benign tumors were S.C.C and hemangioma respectively.
The results indicated that physicians must be more careful regarding the clinical sign and symptoms of these tumors and in the case of clinical suspicion refer them for complete evaluation.
