JUVENILE NASOPHARYNGEAL ANGIOFIBROMA: CASE REPORT
Keywords:Benign tumours, adolescent, juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma
In children, nasopharyngeal masses are extremely uncommon, and most of
them are benign. A strong index of suspicion for juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibromas
should be applied to adolescent boys. The most frequent malignant lesions include lymphomas,
carcinomas, and rhabdomyosarcomas. We offer a thorough study of nasopharyngeal
masses and report a single case of a male adolescent with an atypical presentation of a
benign nasopharyngeal tumor. When diagnosing pediatric nasopharyngeal masses,
radiographic imaging should be done whenever possible in addition to biopsy. Most of the
time, patients appear with seemingly benign symptoms, therefore making a mistake in
judgment might have disastrous consequences.
