Abstract

Extranasopharyngeal Angiofibroma of Inferior Turbinate in a Young Female: A Very Rare Presentation

Juvenile Nasopharyngeal Angiofibroma is an uncommon tumour arising from the tissues within the Sphenopalatine foramen and is an exclusively adolescent male tumour. Angiofibroma not arising from vicinity of Sphenopalatine foramen are called extra-nasopharyngeal angiofibroma. The most common extra-nasopharyngeal angiofibroma is reported from the maxillary sinus. Here we report a case of extranasopharyngeal angiofibroma arising from the anterior end of left inferior turbinate in a 12 year old female child. This case is being reported for its rarity to occur outside nasopharynx and in a female child.
