Juvenile angiofibroma are rare and benign and can develop in the nasopharynx. Juvenile angiofibroma are most common in adolescent boys. They are vascular and grow slowly. They can spread to the eye socket or into the cranial cavity or recur after treatment. Symptoms and complaints Common symptoms include nasal obstruction and epistaxis (sometimes severe, usually unilateral). The tumor can cause swelling of the face, eyes bulging or nose deformation or -raumforderung. Diagnostic computed tomography (CT) Diagnosis usually requires CT and MRI. Angiography is often done so that the tumor vessels can be embolized preoperatively. Since the cutting of the tumor can cause severe bleeding, an incisional biopsy is avoided. Therapy excision and sometimes radiotherapy The treatment consists in its excision. Radiation therapy is sometimes used supportive, particularly if complete removal is difficult or impossible, or if the tumor recurs.
