Abstract: 79 - year - old diabetic and hypertensive patient presented with complaints of right sided epist axis and nasal bock of 3 weeks duration. She also complained of periorbital oedema and watering of right eye for 1 week. Clinical examination and diagnostic nasal endoscopy showed a pinkish proliferative mass filling the right nasal cavity which was found bleeding on touch. CECT showed a lobulated hyperdense lesion with post contrast enhancement occupying right paranasal sinuses and medial compartment of extraconal space of right orbit. CT angiogram was suggestive of a vascular tumour with feeders from right facial artery, sphenopalatine artery, ophthalmic artery and right ACA. Patient underwent radical excision of the tumour. Intraoperatively the tumour appeared greyish to black in colour and was friable. Histopathological examination along with immunohistochemistry was consistent with Sino nasal Melanoma. Considering the age and general condition of the patient, she was referred to a higher oncologic centre for palliative care.
