Sinonasal tract malignancies are usually slow growing tumours with non-specific unilateral symptoms (occasionally bilateral) normal to the site of origin. They comprise a wide spectrum of pathological features. We report the case of a low grade non-intestinal sinonasal adenocarcinoma (SNAC) in a 38-year-old man who presented with a-six month history of right sided nasal blockage that was associated with occasional purulent rhinorrhoea and a month history of epistaxis.
