Juvenile Nasopharyngeal Angiofibroma: Our Experience in a Tertiary Hospital

AbstractNasopharyngeal angiofibroma is a highly vascular tumor seen typically in young adolescent males. It is an uncommon tumor accounting for less than 0.5% of all head and neck tumors. This peculiar tumor is thought to arise from the area of the sphenopalatine foramen and it classically presents with progressive nasal obstruction and epistaxis. This is a retrospective study of angiofibroma treated at our hospital over 3  years. The study discusses about clinical features, management options and the role of embolization in reducing the intra-operative blood loss.
