Lethal midline granuloma: a case report
The Egyptian Journal of Otolaryngology volume 33, pages131–133(2017)
The rarity of lethal midline granuloma and lack of knowledge by the majority of clinicians about this disease makes this disease a difficult entity to diagnose. Nonspecific symptoms of this disease present obstacles in correct diagnosis and lead to a delay in proper treatment. Surgeons play a limited role in this condition. We present a case report of a 38-year-old man with this rare condition.
