Abstract

Nervous congenital anomalies including encephaloceles and heterotopic nervous tissue masses (glioma), located in nasal region present some diagnostic and therapeutic particularities because of their potential of intracranial connection. The authors emphasize the importance of preoperative assessment in order to prevent the intracranial complications.

The authors report the case of 25 days-old girl with a mass on the dorsum and left wall of the nose, presented since birth. Paraclinical exams, including CT scan, revealed the mass features without an intracranial conheterotopic nervous tissue masses (glioma), located in nasal region present some diagnostic and therapeutic particularities because of their potential of intracranial connection. The authors emphasize the importance of preoperative assessment in order to pthology and immunochemistry exams. Although rare, the nervous congenital malformations should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a nasal mass, because it’s possible intracranial connection, requiring a complex pretherapeutic assessment.

Key words: nasal glioma, extranasal heterotopic central nervous system tissue, glial heterotopia.
