Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is an Epstein–Barr Virus (EBV)-associated cancer which is the fifth most common cancer in Malaysia. The gold standard of diagnosis is by the endoscopic biopsy from the Fossa of Rosenmuller. However, early recognition and treatment are difficult due to the wide clinical spectrum of NPC. We report a case of NPC mimicking sphenoid wing meningioma, with no fossa of Rosenmuller mass manifested on endoscopy and computer tomography scan.
