A 48-YEAR-OLD MAN presented to the emergency department with a severe headache and was seen by the attending neurologist. A nonenhanced computed tomographic (CT) scan of the lower sections of the brain revealed a low-density nasopharyngeal tumor with sharply defined margins and without signs of bone erosion (Figure 1). An otolaryngologist was consulted. The patient also complained of hyponasal speech, and according to his wife, he snored nightly. There was no history of nasal obstruction or hearing loss.
