FIRST PARAGRAPH: Nasal glial heterotopia (nasal glioma) is the term used to describe a mass made up of mature brain tissue that is isolated from the cranial cavity or spinal canal. Most of these rare, benign, congenital tumors are found in the nasal region, particularly at the bridge of the nose and in the nasal cavity. Nasal glial heterotopia is frequently diagnosed in newborns; a few cases have been found in adults.
