AB  - RATIONALE: Nasopharyngeal amyloidosis is a benign, slowly progressive disease
      that is characterized by extracellular eosinophilic deposition. PATIENT CONCERNS:
      We report a rare case of localized nasopharyngeal amyloidosis. DIAGNOSES: The
      initial chief complaint of this patient was frequent epistaxis and right aural
      fullness. The initial diagnosis was nasopharyngeal tumor. INTERVENTIONS: There is
      no universally effective medical treatment for nasopharyngeal amyloidosis but
      surgery can be an option. We performed careful observation with regular follow-up
      by nasopharyngoscopy and radiologic study. OUTCOMES: The patient reported no
      further complaints at 1-year follow-up and the lesion from nasopharyngeal
      amyloidosis was still present. LESSONS: Although it is rare, nasopharyngeal
      amyloidosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of epistaxis,
      nasal obstruction, and otitis media with effusion, which are the main symptoms of
      nasopharyngeal carcinoma. In the absence of systemic disease, localized
      nasopharyngeal amyloidosis may be treated conservatively.
