Sinonasal Glomangiopericytoma is an extremely rare tumour that, although benign, should be included in the differential diagnosis of masses in the nasal cavity. An Argentinian male patient of fifty (50) years of age was admitted to Centro de Nariz, Garganta y Oído Concordia. His main symptom was nasal obstruction of four months of evolution predominantly on the right side. He reported no surgical history. A nasal endoscopy showed an angiomatous tumour mass in the right nasal passage. A high resolution computed tomography was requested, showing a soft tissue density image in the ipsilateral cribriform region. After the results of the CT scan, the lesion was resected and biopsied. Its pathological and its associated immunohistochemical analysis gave the diagnosis of Glomangiopericytoma.
