Background: The aim of the study was to identify the pattern of pathologies involving nasal mass lesions which were received for histopathological evaluation at a tertiary hospital in Hyderabad during the period January 2014 to December 2016. Methods: The data pertaining to samples of nasal mass lesions received for histopathological evaluation at the laboratory of a tertiary care hospital in Hyderabad from January 2014 to December 2016 were analyzed to determine the pattern of pathologies diagnosed during such evaluation and the age distribution of all lesions. Results: A total of 62 specimens labeled as nasal masses were received during the period studied. The majority of patients, whose samples were received, were in the age group of 21 – 30 years [35.48%], with very few patients from either extreme of age. Inflammatory nasal polyp was the most common histopathological diagnosis given [26 out of 62 cases, 41.93%] followed by allergic nasal polyp [19 out of 62 cases, 30.64%]. Only one lesion was diagnosed as malignant [squamous cell carcinoma] Conclusion: The majority of nasal mass lesions received for evaluation were inflammatory or else allergic nasal polyps. Most patients were in the third decade of life.
