Abstract

Fibroepithelial polyps, which are rare, benign lesions arising from mesodermal tissue, are rarely seen in the oral cavity and upper airway. We report a case of a 55-year-old female who presented with dysphagia and sensation of a foreign body in the throat for five months duration. There was no history of change in voice, difficulty in breathing or history of trauma. Clinical examination revealed a 2x2 cm unilateral pedunculated mass over the superior pole of the left tonsil. The polyp was excised, and histopathological examination showed features suggestive of fibroepithelial polyp.
