Abstract

Schwannomas are tumors that rarely involve the sinonasal tract or the pterygopalatine fossa. Three cases of benign schwannomas originating in the nasal cavity, the nasal-ethmoid, and the pterygopalatine fossa are reported. Surgical treatment is considered the treatment of choice to achieve long-term success. In this study, the effectiveness of the endoscopic endonasal approach is outlined for the diagnosis and treatment of these benign tumors.
