Fibroepithelial polyp (FEP) is a rare clinical condition of mesodermal origin, covered usually by squamous epithelium, originating most frequently from the skin, genitourinary and lower respiratory tract. Upper airway FEP is a rare lesion found usually in the pharynx and larynx. Only three cases of FEP arising from the nasal mucosa were reported in the world literature, all from the inferior nasal turbinate. In this paper, we describe the first case in the literature of a FEP originating from the nasal septum in a patient suffering from perennial allergic rhinitis. In addition, we discussed the etiology, pathogenesis, histopathological and clinical characteristics of FEPs.

 


 

Fibroepitelyal polip (FEP), genellikle skuamöz epitel ile kaplı, sıklıkla deriden, genitoüriner ve alt solunum yolundan kaynaklanan, mezodermal kökenli nadir bir klinik durumdur. Üst solunum yolu FEP'i genellikle farenks ve larenkste rastlanan nadir bir lezyondur. Dünya literatüründe hepsi alt konka kaynaklı, nazal mukozadan gelişmiş sadece üç FEP olgusu bildirilmiştir. Bu yazıda, perenial alerjik rinitli olup, nazal septumundan FEP köken literatürün ilk olgusunu sunduk. Ayrıca, FEP'lerin etiyolojisi, patogenezi, histopatolojik ve klinik özelliklerini tartıştık.
