Due to difficult anatomical position nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is always challenging problems both from the diagnostic and therapeutic corner. A 24 years old lady came to our Department of Otolaryngology and Head-Neck Surgery with the complaints of epistaxis, right sided neck swelling, nasal obstruction and headache. On digital palpation Nasopharyngeal mass was found. We took biopsy from nasopharynx under indirect vision but report was not conclusive. Then we did CT scan, nasendoscopy. Nasendoscopy showed bilateral ethmoidal polyp with nasopharyngeal mass. We took biopsy from the nasopharyngeal mass and confirmed the diagnosis.
