Histiocytic tumor frequently arise in the head and neck but, as far as we know, this is the first report of a fibrous histiocytoma involving the paranasal sinuses. Although asymptomatic, the patient was seen for evaluation of a rapidly enlarging mass in the left nasal cavity. Roentgenograms of the paranasal sinuses showed evidence of a destructive mass involving the left antrum, ethmoid sinus, and medial wall of the left orbit. Treatment consisted of irradiation and excision.
