Abstract

Nasal glial heterotopia is a non-hereditary, benign, congenital malformation, embryologically related to encephalocele. Nasal gliomas or Nasal glial heterotopia arise due to defective closure of the anterior neuropore during embryological development and represent encephalocele that have lost their intra cranial extension. Neuroimaging studies rule out intracranial involvement, in view of potential intracranial involvement early surgical correction is crucial. A case is presented of neonatal airway obstruction due to neuroglial heterotopia in the right nasal cavity which was removed endoscopically
