Rogue tooth cause of man’s nosebleeds

1008_roguetooth_spA Saudi Arabian man who was suffering chronic nosebleeds has discovered that the cause of his problem was a rogue tooth growing in his nasal cavity.

The 22-year-old man had endured at least one nosebleed a month for three years when he finally decided to seek treatment, according to the American Journal of Case Reports.

Doctors at the King Fahd Military Complex in Dhahran were surprised to discover an “intranasal supernumerary tooth” was causing the young man’s discomfort by scratching the inside of his nose and making it bleed.

The 1cm long rogue tooth was surgically removed and three months later the man has yet to experience another nose bleed.

Dr John Hellstein, who is a professor of oral pathology at the University of Iowa, said the Saudi’s case is one of the rarest he has seen.

“It’s an unusual case of an extra tooth – certainly, the most impressive intranasal photo I think I’ve ever seen of one,” he said.

“I’ve never seen the tooth actually in there.”
