ABSTRACT
Introduction: Amyloidosis in the head and neck is a rare but benign disease. Primary amyloidosis localized to the sinonasal tract is extremely rare. This is a report of one such case with a brief review of the literature. Case report: A 42 year old lady who presented with epistaxis and left sided nasal obstruction was found to have a mass in the left nasal cavity, which was proved to be amyloidosis after histopathological examination. Conclusion: Localized amyloidosis, though rare, can be considered as a differential diagnosis for a nasal mass.
