A fifty-two-years-old man came with left nasal obstruction and proptosis of the left eye. There was history of one episode of bleeding per nostril. The patient also complained of headache on and off. On clinical examination there was an irregular large mass in the nostrils completely obstructing the nasal cavity. The mass was partially necrotic and insensitive to touch. Ophthalmic examination revealed proptosis of the left eye with total loss of vision. CT was performed [Figure - 1],[Figure - 2].
