A 5-year-old girl was referred for evaluation of an asymptomatic growth on the midline nasal region. The lesion, which had been present for 3 years, had slowly increased in size. There was no preceding injury, and the patient was otherwise in excellent health.

Physical examination revealed a nonmobile, soft, nontender subcutaneous mass without a fistula (Figure 1). Surface telangiectasias were noted. Palpation of the facial bony structures revealed no abnormalities. The nasal bridge was not widened.
