A 50-YEAR-OLD man presented with a 3-month history of progressively worsening left-sided nasal obstruction due to an enlarging mass. This otherwise painless, nonbleeding vestibular mass was associated with no other local or systemic symptoms. The patient was a moderate smoker, with no other contributory medical or social history. Examination revealed a firm, blue-gray, round, smooth, broad-based lesion, measuring 3.5 cm in diameter, originating from the anterosuperior cartilaginous septum. The overlying mucosa was intact and otherwise normal in appearance.
