Abstract: An 82-year-old Chinese male nonsmoker who had left maxillary pain and swelling started in 2016. He had occasionally bloodstained purulent discharge from the left side of the nose. Examination showed a hard palate bulging over the upper alveolar ridge with loosened left upper molar tooth that was badly eroded.
