Abstract

Juvenile Nasopharyngeal Angiofibromas (JNA) are rare tumors found exclusively in adolescent boys. There are multiple approaches available for resection of these tumors, and the approach used depends largely on tumor extension. Endoscopic resection is the favored approach for treatment, with pre-operative embolization allowing for reduced blood loss and also decreasing the length of hospital stay.
