Very few reports have described adenoid cystic carcinoma of the nasal septum. We performed endoscopic endonasal surgical resection of an adenoid cystic carcinoma of the nasal septum in a 61-year-old woman. Histological examination confirmed adenoid cystic carcinoma. The patient has had no local recurrence or distant metastases as of 3 years postoperatively.
