Chiang CH, Juan KH, Kuo WR, Tai CF, Wu JR. Nasal septal cyst--a case report. Kaohsiung J Med Sci. 1996;12(4):256-9.
The usual complications of submucous resection of the nasal septum (SMR) are septal hematoma, infection, hemorrhage, septal perforation, and nasal deformity. We present a case of nasal septal cyst which may be a rare complication of SMR. Entrapment of free nasal mucosal remnants or inward folding of incised septal mucosa is thought to be the cause. The patient underwent deroofment of the left cystic wall by lateral rhinotomy. There was no recurrence after one year.
