Pages:

The Editor,

Sir,

Angiofibromas account for less than 1% of all head and neck tumours and they predominantly arise in the nasopharynx (NPA), mainly affecting adolescent males. Extranasopharyngeal angiofibroma's (ENPA) are very rare with less than 80 cases reported in the literature and none arising from the external auditory canal.
