Unilateral nasal polyps in a middle-age patient. Endoscopic morphology appearance is indistinguishable from ethmoidal polyps. Postnasal space examination revealed a more solid mass crossing over to the contralateral side. Imaging study is necessary and deep biopsy would show its characteristic histopathologic features.

Histopathologically confirmed haemangioma (X).
Profuse bleeding from tumour upon manipulation.
Meningioma (histologically-proven) presenting as unilateral nasal blockage and headache. Endoscopy showed right-sided tumour mass (T) which appeared vascular. CT-scan revealed tumour extension to anterior skull base
and into right frontal lobe.
