Introduction: Neurofibroma originated from nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses are rare, and we report a rare case of nasal neurofibroma with cystic degeneration. Case Report: A 61 years old female was found to have a large cyst in the left nasal cavity due to nasal obstruction. Eight months after cyst resection, she came to our hospital due to nasal and frontal distended pain, tumor found in the left nasal cavity. The tumor was resected completely under nasal endoscopy, and the postoperative pathology was neurofibroma. No recurrence was observed after one year follow-up. Discussion and Conclusion: Nasal neurofibroma is rare and easily misdiagnosed, confirmed by immunohistochemistry. Owing to its characteristic of invasive growth, we should look for the tumor pedicle under the nasal endoscopy and remove the tumor completely, grinding the surrounding bone, and avoid recurrence.
