[Imaging analysis of respiratory epithelial adenomatoid hamartoma in the nasal olfactory clefts].
Objective:To analyze the imaging features of respiratory epithelial adenomatoid hamartoma (REAH) in the nasal olfactory clefts. Method:Forty-two patients with REAH in the nasal olfactory clefts confirmed by pathology were enrolled in this study and their imaging features were analyzed. Result:All lesions of the patients were located in bilateral olfactory clefts, accompanied by varying degrees of sinusitis and nasal polyps. CT and MRI of sinuses showed that expanded soft tissue in bilateral olfactory region. The bilateral middle turbinate was extruded laterally. Sagittal images showed discoid-shaped mass changes. Conclusion:The imaging manifestations of REAH have certain characteristics, which can provide a basis for clinical diagnosis. Clinical analysis combined with imaging examination can improve the diagnosis of REAH and guide the treatment.
