A rare cause of pediatric nasal obstruction and epistaxis Nasal septal mixed hemangioma

, : A rare cause of pediatric nasal obstruction and epistaxis Nasal septal mixed hemangioma. International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology Extra 8(3): 104-107

Hemangiomas are rare benign vascular endothelial tumors mostly arising in the head and neck area. The infantile cases are the most frequently seen pediatric tumors with an incidence of 5%. Usually, congenital lesions are located on the facial skin or oral mucosa, the nasal cavity is not a common site for hemangiomas. Histologically, there are three types including capillary, cavernous and mixed hemangiomas. Epistaxis and nasal obstruction are the most common presentations for nasal involvement. In this article we present the first reported case of pediatric capillary-cavernous hemangioma of the nasal cavity in the literature with a review of current theories regarding the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of this rare type of hemangioma.
