Nasal Glioma: Prenatal Imaging Diagnosis

Author(s): Clarós P, Ribeiro I, Clarós A

Nasal glioma is a rare congenital and benign tumor of the middle face. The prenatal diagnosis of this fetal tumor represents an important advance in care, as it is essential to guide the prenatal counseling of the couple and the orientation of prenatal and/or postnatal management. We report here our experience with nasal gliomas, reporting a case with prenatal diagnosis, evoked intrauterine with ultrasonographic examination and confirmed after birth. This allowed the psychological preparation of the parents by counseling on the interventions to come, that were performed at 26 months with good outcome.
