Abstract

Nasopharyngeal Angiofibroma is a relatively rare benign, but locally aggressive tumor of the nasopharynx afflicting the adolescent males. The management of these tumors has been a subject of much interest and controversy in the past. Here we present a series of 19 patients of nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (with CT Scan as the main stay of diagnosis) managed over the last 5 years at ENT and Head & Neck Surgery Department of S.S.G. Hospital, Vadodara, with intraoperative internal maxillary artery ligation via the transmaxillary approach permitting accurate removal of tumor with no major post operative complications, minimal blood loss, good cosmetic result and no recurrence till date. If further experience with this approach to management in a larger series of patients has the same results, surgery should be the gold standard in treatment of Nasopharyngeal angiofibroma.
