Ectopic tooth as a rare cause of foreign body reaction of the nose
This is a case report of a 71-year-old male with three months of gradually increasing irritation, secretion and right-sided nasal stenosis. The patient had not experienced any facial trauma nor had he had any previous surgical intervention to the nasal or oral cavity. An examination of the nasal cavity raised the suspicion of a foreign body in the right nasal floor. A computed tomography was performed and a high-density, foreign body was identified. The patient was referred to the local department of otorhinolaryngology, where an ectopic tooth was successfully removed in local anaesthesia.
