The Teaching Point

Myxomas arising within the vomer bone have generally benign CT and MR imaging findings that are in keeping with previously reported head and neck myxoma characteristics. These include expansile, often well-circumscribed margins, T2 hyperintensity, and heterogenous enhancement. Although rare, a myxoma of the vomer bone may be considered in the differential diagnosis of benign appearing nasal septal masses.

Abstract
Myxomas of bone in the head and neck are rare tumors. We present a 68 year old female with pain and epistaxis who was found to have the first reported case of a myxoma arising within the vomer bone. Some atypical magnetic resonance imaging features are described, however, myxoma imaging features are often non-specific and typically evoke a benign differential diagnosis. Surgical excision is the treatment of choice.
