We present a case of a pregnant patient with a rapidly growing mass within the nasal fossa that was imaged by CT 2 weeks postpartum. Concern for malignancy existed and biopsy was performed, revealing pyogenic granuloma gravidarum. This uncommon lesion should be considered in any gravid patient when a mass occurs within the mouth or nasal fossa.
