Ophtho Relieved That Periorbital Mass Is Just the Patient’s Nose

AUGUSTA, GA – Thanks to the assistance of both Oncology & ENT, a local ophthalmologist is relieved to find out a patient’s periorbital mass is simply just his nose.

“Phew, that was a close call,” uttered Dr. Scott O’Malley, Professor of Ophthalmology at the Masters Eye Center in Augusta. He wiped a considerable amount of sweat from his brow. “You can never be too careful with these things. As far as I know, the nose is a benign growth.”

O’Malley was performing a comprehensive eye exam on his patient when he came across the pointy-shaped protrusion. He observed that it increased in size caudally before retreating back into the patient’s face just above the lip. It was also notable for two perforations located on its undermost side.

“At the time I was incredibly concerned, yes, very much so,” O’Malley explained, hugely appreciative of the timely consultations from his colleagues. “The periorbital growth was situated between both the left and right eye. Thankfully, it wasn’t causing any mass effect on either one. No vision loss, no papilledema. I knew I had to act quickly.”

The patient has taken heed of the advice of both consultants and will be finding a new ophthalmologist.
