Osteomas are located mostly in the mandible followed by paranasal sinuses such as frontal sinuses, ethmoid air cells, maxillary sinuses and rarely based on nazal cavitiy or turbinate. The osteoma located on outside of nazal bone is extremely rare. The authors report an unusual patient of nasal bone osteoma associated with aesthetic problem on nasal dorsum. Outer side of nasal bone osteoma in large diameter causes aesthetic problems. The authors believe that open rhinoplasty approach is successful in this type of patients.
