Schneiderian papillomas

The ectodermally derived ciliated respiratory mucosa that lines the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses, so-called Schneiderian membrane, gives rise to three morphologically distinct types of papillomas. These are referred to individually as inverted, oncocytic, and exo-phytic papillomas or, collectively, as Schneiderian papillomas. As a group, the Schneiderian papillomas are uncommon, representing only 0.44.7% of all sinonasal tumours {1423}.
