Nodular fasciitis is an uncommon tumor-like fibroblastic proliferation of the head and neck that is difficult to differentiate from its more malignant counterparts. Despite modern advances, making this distinction is challenging because the clinical presentation is nonspecific and the histologic and radiologic features are variable. Once nodular fasciitis is diagnosed, the primary treatment is conservative resection and observation. We describe a case of nodular fasciitis of the nasal cavity in a 43-year-old woman. To the best of our knowledge, this is only the second reported case of nodular fasciitis arising in the nasal cavity, and the first such case in an adult.
