Abstract

An unusual problem, a soft-tissue mass of the left temporal fossa, is described. Differential diagnoses and pertinent studies for identifying the mass are reviewed. Our patient had a temporalis fascia defect with herniation of the temporal muscle causing his mass and associated symptoms. Surgical exploration, necessary for diagnosis, afforded us the opportunity for definitive treatment.
