CT scan nose and paranasal sinuses plain / contrast were taken.

It showed non enhancing mass arising from sphenoid sinus entering the post nasal space and the posterior portion of right nasal cavity.


This patient was taken up for endoscopic sinus surgery and the mass was removed completely in toto.
Histopathology report - fibroma
Fibroma involving sphenoid sinus and post nasal space are commonly vascular (angiofibroma). In this case the fibrous elements
predominated and hence the mass was not enhancing in contrast CT. There was no abnormal bleeding during surgery.
