    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Computed tomography (CT) of the head;

    Coronal reformation. Destruction of the left turbinates and invasion of the anterior cranial fossa, posterior orbit and maxillary sinus. Destruction of the perpendicular plate and invasion of the contralateral side.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Computed tomography (CT) of the head;

    Coronal reformation. The mass extends to the left part of the epipharynx and invades the ipsilateral pterygopalatine fossa.

    Multiplanar reformation in the sagittal plane. The mass extends superiorly, with destruction of the cribriform plate, posteriorly, and inferiorly into the epipharynx and sphenoid sinus.

    Axial scan. Mass extension into the superior part of the left orbit with exophthalmus and destruction of the cribriform plate with extension into the anterior cranial fossa.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Computed tomography (CT) of the head;

    Axial scan showing destruction of the lamina papyracea and mass extension to the left orbit with mass effect to the medial rectus muscle causing exophthalmus. Destruction of the perpendicular plate and invasion of the...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Computed tomography (CT) of the head;

    Axial scan at the level of the turbinates which appear eroded. The inner wall of the left maxillary sinus is also eroded with mass extension into the sinus. The sphenoid sinus is also invaded.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Computed tomography (CT) of the head;

    Axial scan, bone window. Full invasion of the left nasal cavity and ipsilateral maxillary sinus is seen.

Axial scan showing destruction of the lamina papyracea and mass extension to the left orbit with mass effect to the medial rectus muscle causing exophthalmus. Destruction of the perpendicular plate and invasion of the contralateral side is also seen with remodelling of the lamina papyracea on the right side.
 
Axial scan at the level of the turbinates which appear eroded. The inner wall of the left maxillary sinus is also eroded with mass extension into the sinus. The sphenoid sinus is also invaded.
 
Axial scan, bone window. Full invasion of the left nasal cavity and ipsilateral maxillary sinus is seen.
