CLINICAL NOTE Bilateral Olfactory Fossa Respiratory Epithelial Adenomatoid Hamartomas Jean Anderson Eloy, MD; Mark E. Friedel, MD; Jean Daniel Eloy, MD; Neena M. Mirani, MD; James K. Liu, MD espiratory epithelial adenomatoid hamartoma (REAH) is a rare benign nonneoplastic sinonasal lesion that usually presents unilaterally. We report an unusual case of bilat- eral olfactory fossa REAHs mimicking an olfactory neuroblastoma that originated from R the superior aspect of the middle turbinates. To our knowledge, only 1 similar case has been reported to date. Rhinologists and skull base surgeons should be aware of this rare entity to prevent unnecessary radical surgical interventions. Complete removal can be performed using a minimally invasive endonasal endoscopic approach. Hamartomas are benign malformations masses in the olfactory fossae, with bilat- composed of mature tissue elements that eral lateralization of the middle turbinates, are indigenous to the involved anatomi- clinically suggestive of an olfactory neuro- cal location.
