Abstract: Various types of diseases can involve the nasal vestibule. Diagnosis and treatment of a nasal vestibular mass is often challenging
due to the anatomical features of the nasal vestibule. Here, we present four cases with nasal vestibular masses. Two cases were diagnosed
as squamous papillomas. The others were a trichofolliculoma and pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia with hyperkeratosis. Our aim was to
discuss the characteristics of each disease and the considerations thought to be necessary for diagnosis and treatment of nasal vestibular
tumors from these cases and the related literature. (IJCEP1309045).
