Abstract

Inverted papilloma is a sinonasal benign tumor characterized by the tendency to recurrence and the possibility of malignant transformation. The authors present the case of a malignized inverted papilloma in the form of a squamous cell carcinoma with ethmoidal location and extension towards the sphenoid and the nasal fossa. The loco-regional tumor location and extension imposed the postponement of the surgical intervention, the first therapeutical line being represented by chemotherapy, followed by the total excision, under endoscopic check-up, of the remaining tumor formation.

Keywords: sinonasal inverted papilloma, malignancy, multimodal oncologic treatment
