Malignant oncocytoma is a rare clinical entity and is most commonly seen in the salivary glands. Its occurrence in the nasal cavity is extremely rare, and only 4 such cases have been reported in the literature. The authors report one such case in a 60-year-old woman, which presented as a slow- growing nasal mass arising from the nasal septum, with no lymph node metastasis, which was successfully managed by a combined modality of treatment - surgery followed by radiation therapy. The relevant literature has been reviewed. The case is discussed as a possible differential diagnosis for a mass in the nose.
