Abstract

  Aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) are rare in the head and neck region, and ABCs of the nasal cavity are even less common. Ascertaining a diagnosis may be difficult owing to their variable clinical presentation. Herein, we document the case of a 17-year-old male who presented with symptoms of nasal obstruction and proptosis of his eye. Imaging revealed a “classic” intra-cystic fluid-fluid level which, while not completely unique to ABCs, lends itself to diagnosing these lesions. The common presentation, diagnostic methodology, and treatment of aneurysmal bone cysts are also discussed.
