We share an interesting case of a child whom we saw with a low-grade inflammatory infraorbital mass secondary to a foreign body that localized to the infratemporal fossa. There are several unanswered questions about the ultimate source of the foreign body. However, this case stresses the importance of a broad differential diagnosis and the choice of imaging modality in children.
A 7-year-old girl was seen with a 2-month history of increased prominence and erythema of her left zygomatic arch and surrounding tissues. The family recalled minor, blunt trauma that occurred several weeks prior to the change in the child's appearance. The patient was in good health and medical history was otherwise unremarkable.
