The CT and MR findings of a nasopharyngeal nonossifying variant of an ossifying fibromyxoid tumor are presented. The findings are radiographically indistinguishable from more common malignant neoplasms encountered in this region. The tumor was isointense with muscle on T1-weighted images. On proton density- and T2-weighted images, the mass was mostly isointense with gray matter but contained some areas of lower intensity that might reflect the fibrous tissue component. The tumor eroded through the floor of the middle cranial fossa.
