Necrotizing sialometaplasia

  • J. D. Russell (a1), G. W. Glover (a1) and I. Friedmann (a2)


Necrotizing sialometaplasia is a benign self-limiting disorder which can simulate malignancy. We report the third such case of nasal fossa involvement in the literature. The pathology of this condition is discussed.
