R. D. Anderson, MD, and K. D. Devine, MD, Rochester, Minn  A 60-year-old white woman consulted her local otolaryngologist about a nasal obstruction of three to four months duration.

The remainder of the examination was negative and sinus x-ray films were clear.Excision of the polyp was accomplished and the patient was referred to the Mayo Clinic. With cocainization, a gray boggy granulation-like area was noted at the posterior end of the middle turbinate and sphenoethmoid recess area.
