Abstract: Juvenile angiofibroma is benign yet aggressive. Due to its inaccessible location in the nasopharynx, open surgery usually requires osteotomies which cause stunting of facial growth in adolescent males. Advances in imaging and treatment techniques have now facilitated more accurate staging of this disease. For small, extracranial tumours limited to the nasal cavity and paranasal sinus, endoscopic resection is a viable alternative. This case report will illustrate how endoscopic resection allows good control with minimal morbidity compared to open surgery or radiotherapy.
