Presumptively diagnosed as having an ethmoid mucocele, the patient underwent endoscopic biopsy and decompression of the lesion. Final pathologic diagnosis was consistent with fibrous dysplasia. Since surgery, the patient has remained free of headaches with follow-up of 4 years, with no evidence of growth of the remainder of the lesion by computed tomography.
