Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA) is a high-risk tumor of adolescent males. Choice of the approach should be based on the stage and site of the lesion. For complete removal of tumor, surgical exposure must be adequate. We here present a case of nasopharyngeal angiofibroma with intracranial and bilateral infratemporal fossa extension in which tumor was completely excised by nasomaxillary swing approach.
