A 71-year-old Japanese male patient presented with a rare case of Glomangiopericytoma (GPC) of the left nasal with obstruction. Complete resection with endoscopic surgery was performed. Immunohistochemical staining for smooth muscle actin, β catenin, cyclin D1, vimentin, and factor 13 were helpful in establishing a definitive diagnosis. Extranasal treatment has been traditionally performed for successful management. However, recent advances in endoscopic treatment have enabled complete endoscopic resection of GPC, minimizing morbidity and facilitating subsequent surveillance for recurrence. Endoscopic management should be considered in suitable cases.
