Abstract: The authors report a case of nasal malignant melanoma involving the septum, nasal turbinates and nasopharynx which was approached by lateral rhinotomy combined with an anterior transantral approach with excision of the septum and the lateral wall of the nasal cavity for wide exposure of the tumour. Using this technique complete surgical resection of a large nasal malignant melanoma was achieved with minimal morbidity and good aesthetics.
