ABSTRACT

Locally advanced staged juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA) traditionally treated with external approaches has been associated with significant morbidities such as blood loss with subsequent blood transfusions, scars, impaired speech, poor swallowing, recurrence and prolonged hospital stays. This case report describes our initial experience in a patient with a locally advanced JNA treated with endonasal endoscopic approach and angio-embolization at Kingston Public Hospital, Jamaica, with subsequent benefits.
