A male teenager presented with a 2-month history of recurrent epistaxis and nasal congestion. Nasal endoscopy demonstrated a 2-cm friable mass in the left nasal cavity. A computed tomographic scan revealed a 2.3-cm soft-tissue density in the left nasal cavity (Figure, A) and a magnetic resonance imaging scan confirmed by this delineating a heterogeneously enhancing mass, without clear attachments to the nasal septum (Figure, B). Findings from a positron emission tomographic scan were negative.
