Pathology of Juvenile Angiofibroma

Dr Sampurna Roy MD





Juvenile angiofibromas, most commonly found in adolescent males, are vascular lesions that occur in the nasopharynx and extend into other areas of the skull.

Presenting signs and symptoms include epistaxis, nasal obstruction and nasal drainage.

This rare tumour-like lesion is characterized by architecturally irregular vessels set in a fibrous stroma.

These lesions are benign histologically but they may become life-threatening with excessive bleeding or intracranial extension.
