ABSTRACTInverted papilloma represents 0.5% to 7% of all nasal tumors, and 70% of sinonasal papillomas. Diagnosis implies several clinic, endoscopic and image aspects. Advances in surgical endoscopic techniques have provided an important control of the disease, and have diminished the morbidity that was traditionally present in these patients. We present the case of a 59-year-old male, with a nasal tumor that was resected by endoscopic surgery. The pathologic study revealed inverted papilloma. Nowadays 2 years after the surgery patient has no endoscopic, nor radiologic evidence of recurrence. The main objective of this paper is to make a review of the sickness and the therapeutic options, as well as the endoscopic surgery benefits.
