Inverted or Schneiderian papilloma is a locally aggressive benign tumor with strong recurring tendency and a high potential to transform into a malignant squamous cell carcinoma. Although the clinical characteristics of inverted papilloma, along with the morphological features, have been adequately described, controversy remains with regards to the risk factors and disease etiology. The complete excision of the tumor by surgery is traditionally considered the mainstay of therapy.

This paper updates the state of knowledge and presents our experience from treating 52 patients, diagnosed with inverted papilloma, who underwent surgical treatment in our department. We performed genotyping for Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) for all the patients included in our study group.
