Extranasopharyngeal angiofibromas are rare tumors with only 65 cases being reported in the world literature. The most common sites involved are maxillary sinus, ethmoid sinus, sphenoid sinus, nasal septum, middle turbinate, inferior turbinate, cheek, conjunctiva, pterygomaxillary fissure, infratemporal fossa and laryngotracheal tree. We report on a case of 18 years old male patient of extranasopharyngeal angiofibroma of nasal septum.
