Large mass in centered in the sphenoid sinus with bony destruction is present. The mass can be faintly seen to erode through the clivus and into the pituitary fossa.
This patient went on to have a biopsy of the left nasal cavity mass.
FINDINGS: Undifferentiated carcinoma. The biopsy shows an undifferentiated carcinoma associated with an extensive plasmacytic infiltrate. The morphology of the tumor is consistent with the recurrence of nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Tumors with this morphology may also occur as a primary in the nasal cavity. Correlation with the clinical findings is recommended.
