Inverted papilloma (IP) is a rare benign disease arising from the Schneiderian epithelium of the sinonasal tract. Despite the nonmalignant nature, this neoplasm is characterized by a sneaky behavior due to the considerable recurrence rate and the association with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), which can appear either in a metachronous or synchronous fashion. The diagnostic process of this lesion comprises sinonasal endoscopic evaluation, computed tomographic (CT) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan and endoscopic guided office-based biopsy. In relation to the extent of the disease, several therapeutic approaches have been identified and, whenever possible, surgery represents the first choice. Moreover, endoscopic transnasal surgery has now become the gold standard in the management of IP of the sinonasal tract.
