Abstract

Nomenclature has often led to confusion in the literature because the terminology has not been carefully followed and synonyms have been carelessly applied. The following case is an example of a rare tumor of the nasal mucosa the structure of which is characteristic. In the few similar cases reported, however, classification has been confused by the lack of uniformity in terminology. Thus the same type of tumor arising from the oral and respiratory mucous membrane has been reported in the foreign literature as cylindroma, basal cell carcinoma and endothelioma. A comparable tumor has not been described in the American literature, although a case practically identical in its clinical course and histologic picture was studied by Jaffé.1 Beck and Guttman2 included 2 so-called cylindromas in their survey of 579 tumors of the nose and nasal sinuses without describing the histologic details of the individual cases.
