A 3-year-old boy presented for evaluation of a mass within the nasal vestibule. The mass, which had first been noticed approximately 2 months earlier, had burst and bled on one occasion, and subsequently regrew. Otherwise, the patient had been asymptomatic. His family denied any history of trauma, nasal discharge, allergic symptoms, hoarseness, or weight loss. His medical history was remarkable only for recurrent otitis media, for which he had undergone placement of tympanostomy tubes 2 years earlier.
