Neonatal nasal masses are rare and can present with respiratory and feeding problems. Frequently, due to a paucity of available data, nasal masses can be diagnostic and therapeutic dilemmas. We present a case of a 7-day-old full-term female, who presented to our clinic with a right-sided nasal mass that had been present since birth. A biopsy of the mass revealed a diagnosis of nasal chondromesenchymal hamartoma (NCMH). In this report, we emphasize the evaluation of the patient, the benefit of preoperative imaging, the surgical risks, and the post-operative concerns.
