A 62-YEAR-OLD WHITE MAN presented with a 1-month history of increasing left-sided facial swelling and nasal obstruction in the left side of his nose. His primary care physician had treated him with amoxicillin–clavulanate potassium (Augmentin) for a presumed diagnosis of sinusitis, without success. On further questioning, he stated that he had had the congestion for 4 or 5 months. He denied visual changes, hyposmia, or purulent nasal discharge. He was a smoker and a retired steel worker.
