Sinonasal Neuroendocrine Carcinoma (SNEC) is a very rare malignancy which is difficult to differentiate from other nasopharyngeal malignancies due to similar morphological characteristics and small biopsy specimen. We report the case of a 35-year-old female who presented with nasal obstruction and recurrent epistaxis. Histopathological examination along with immunohistochemistry for neuroendocrine markers is required for accurate diagnosis.
