A Case of Respiratory Epithelial Adenomatoid Hamartoma (REAH) in a Patient with History of Radiation Exposure
Respiratory epithelial adenomatoid hamartomas (REAHs) are becoming a more commonly recognized otolaryngologic tumor and are often misdiagnosed as inverted papilloma. Here, we present such a case in a patient with history of previous radiation exposure. Otolaryngologists and pathologists should be aware of the mucinous histological appearance of REAH to help differentiate from other growths. Given our patient s history, an association between REAH and previous radiation exposure is worth consideration.
