Educational Objective: The authors wish to discuss that there is a vast number of diagnosis for nasal obstruction in children. We would also like to discuss the clinical presentation, evaluation, and treatment options for patients presenting with Schneiderian exophytic papilloma. Objectives: 1) To present a rare case of exophytic Schneiderian papilloma in a juvenile patient; and 2) to review the literature of juvenile exophytic Schneiderian papilloma. Study Design: Retrospective case report. Methods: In this report, we discuss the occurrence, the histopathologic and radiological findings, and the treatment of exophytic Schneiderian papilloma in a pediatric patient. A review of the literature of exophytic Schneiderian papilloma in pediatric population was performed. Results: This case report shows a rare cause of nasal polyposis in a pediatric patient. The report discusses an exophytic Schneiderian papilloma in an eleven year old male which was emanating from the posterior aspect of the inferior turbinate. Conclusions: Nasal polyposis is a common finding in pediatric population, however, a diagnosis of exophytic Schneiderian papilloma is a rare diagnosis.
