A 17-year-old African American male adolescent presented with a 2-month history of left orbital swelling and nasal obstruction that were unresponsive to treatment with oral antibiotics and decongestants. He was otherwise healthy, with no history of asthma, eczema, diabetes mellitus, or recent trauma. He had no known drug or environmental allergies. Anterior rhinoscopy revealed a large pink mass in the left nasal airway. Mild left orbital proptosis was noted. Visual acuity was normal. The findings of the rest of the head and neck examination were noncontributory.
