Inverted papilloma is a benign tumor that is characterized by invagination of nasal and paranasal sinus mucosa epithelium into the stroma. It often originates from the lateral nasal wall and is mostly seen among males between 50 and 60 years old. We presented a 14-year-old boy who applied with the complaint of single-sided nasal obstruction and was operated on due to the diagnosis of an antrochoanal polyp. Postoperative pathology revealed the presence of inverted papilloma. It is suggested that inverted papilloma should be considered in childhood nasal lesions
