Abstract

Switch/sucrose non-fermentable-related matrix-associated actin-dependent regulator of chromatin subfamily B member 1 (SMARCB1), also known as integrase interactor 1–deficient sinonasal carcinoma, is a rare entity that was first described in 2014. Since then, there have been 39 cases published in the literature, with basaloid or plasmacytoid/rhabdoid morphology being the most common pathological subtype. We report a patient with switch/sucrose non-fermentable-related matrix-associated actin-dependent regulator of chromatin subfamily B member 1 (integrase interactor 1)-deficient sinonasal carcinoma who had permanent vision loss after valsalva-induced acute hemorrhage and resultant orbital compartment syndrome.
