NASOPHARYNGEAL ANGIOFIBROMA IN AN ADULT MALE: REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE.
Keywords:Benign tumours, adolescent, juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma, male, symptoms.
Nasopharyngeal angiofibroma frequently referred to as "juvenile nasopharyngeal
angiofibroma," is an uncommon benign tumor that exhibits strong vascularity and sluggish
development. It usually affects male adolescents between the ages of 14 and 25, and
symptoms such as nasal blockage or epistaxis are typical. Adult prevalence and incidence
numbers have not yet been determined with precision. Because of its propensity for local
invasiveness, the tumor can represent a serious risk even when it is benign. The recommended
course of treatment is complete surgical resection, with preoperative angiography helping to
visualize arteries connected to the tumor and embolization.
