NEUROGENIC TUMORS of the nasal fossa have been reported sporadically since Berger, Luc, and Richard1 reported the first case in 1924. The number of these tumors seen at any one institution is few, and, therefore, conclusions reached by various authors are not always in agreement as to the method of management and as to the prognosis. In 1961 von Largiader2 reviewed the world's literature on the subject and reported some 51 cases which have been documented to that date. The purpose of this paper is to present a clinical analysis of 18 patients in the records of Memorial Hospital which have been followed up from 5 to 27 years.3 The period of follow-up of the cases reported in the world's literature has been relatively short and in many cases limited to a year or less. It is of considerable interest, therefore, to examine the clinical behavior
