Abstract

Intranasal ectopic teeth are rare and ectopic eruption of teeth can occur in a variety of locations. Commonly seen in the palate and maxillary sinus, they have also been reported in the mandibular condyle, coronoid process, orbital and nasal cavities, and through the skin. With the advent of sinonasal endoscopy in the mid 1980s, and subsequent advances in surgical techniques, endoscopic management of intranasal lesions has become possible. In the current case study, we report a successful endoscopic removal of intranasal ectopic teeth located in the nasal cavity. The endoscopic surgical approach used in this case caused less morbidity than do the more common methods of removing an intranasal ectopic tooth.
