Abstract Strut graft is an important, commonly used method to increase nasal tip projection and rotation. This study discuss its benefit by prospective analysis of a group of patients in which strut graft was used and compare it with a control group using digitalized photographs. The aim of this study is to evaluate the benefit of columellar strut graft and its effect on nasal projection and rotation using digital images. Thirty two patients were treated with external rhinoplasty. Using their photographs, we analyzed the projection and rotation of the nose before and after operation. The patients were classified into two groups: group A included 18 patients who have strut and group B included 14 patients without strut. The analysis of the photos of the two groups was done with a computer program. By using Goode method, nasal tip projection decreases from 0.63 to 0.62 for patients using the strut, while in patients without strut nasal tip projection decreases from 0.64 to 0.61. Nasal tip rotation slightly increased in patients with strut graft from 99 to 99.5 degrees, while in those without the graft, nasal tip rotation markedly increased from 95 to 103 degrees. In conclusion, external rhinoplasty decreases nasal tip projection and the use of strut graft is unnecessary in increasing nasal tip projection but it helps in preserving the projection and slightly increasing nasal tip rotation.

NASAL GLIOMA, A CASE REPORT AND LITERATURE
REVIEW���������.Nasal glioma (also known as nasal glial heterotopia) has been used to describe a congenital
benign tumor of the nasal region containing neural tissue. It arises from failure of closure of
foramen caecum at about the third week of gestation. The patient described in this report is
an 18 months old girl who presented with a nasal bridge swelling for three months. The
differential diagnosis included nasal encephalocele, nasal dermoid and epidermoid cysts. All
are due to failure of ectoderm and neuroectoderm embryologic separation. CT scan and MRI
imaging can be used to look for probable concomitant intracranial tumors and the existence of
a connection between nasal tumor and the brain. Surgical resection is the usual method of
managing such pathologies. In this case, an open rhinoplasty approach was used to resect
this mass after the radiologic evaluation was complete.

Abstract
Despite the prevalence and long history since nasal polyps were recognized as a clinical entity, many questions still exist with respect to their aetiology & pathogensis, this study aims to assess the role of allergy in the aetiology of nasal polyps based on their epidemiology in Basrah governorate in Iraq & by utilizing the skin test, from January 2000-december 2000 84 patients with simple nasal polyps 50 males & 34 females with age range between 18-70 years were studied by collecting data regarding the history, physical examination& investigations in a questionnaire form .88 normal subjects were also included as a control group. Both patients & controls were subjected to intradermal skin test using seven common aeroallergens.
Out of the 84 patients 58 (69%) had a positive skin test to one or more of the tested allergens, while only 20 (23%) of the control group had a positive test. This difference is statistically significant (p<0.00001), odd ratio=8.0 which means allergic persons were 8 times more prone to have polyps than normal subjects.
Allergy appears to play an important role in the aetiology of nasal polyps and the skin test is useful in the assessment of patients with polyps who may therefore benefit from immuno therapy.
