Nasal lobular capillary hemangioma is a benign lesion of unknown etiology. Epistaxis and nasal obstruction are the most marked symptoms. We present a case of lobular capillary hemangioma, which was located on the posterior end of middle turbinate. The case is reported for its potential for being misdiagnosed and to highlight the advantage of nasal endoscopes in diagnosis and treatment.
