Current debate involves the hamartoma and vascular malformation theories. Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol.

For after septoplasty, a window was made in the cartilaginous septum, enabling you to enter through this passage one or two tools in handling the second surgeon. The second patient, also with a Fisch I tumor, underwent clamping nasotaringeo the external carotid arteries without embolization. Losses in the genomic stability are possibly in connection to these statements and there are several consensual regions of chromosomal abnormalities to be evaluated.

On palpation, the swelling was firm and nontender. They develop at a slightly older age and occur more commonly in women. Besides, it was observed that with the fibrous component development the bleeding trend decreases 9.

Pathology Outlines – Nasopharyngeal angiofibroma

The noradrenergic fibers are located in the peripheral portions of the tumor, which may indicate that during surgical excision, keeping the dissection plan away from its parenchyma may decrease the bleeding by means of the local vasoconstrictor innervation maintenance 8. Moreover, the mean blood loss in these patients was mL.

Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma originates in the sphenopalatine forame, causing epistaxes and nasal obstruction. There is marked contrast enhancement following administration of contrast, reflecting the prominent vascularity. A c-Kit and NGF nerve growth factor high pressure was detected by immunohistochemistry in the ANJ stromal cells, angioifbroma to nasal polyp tissues Currently, surgery appears to be the best treatment of the NAJ.


Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma | Radiology Reference Article |

Several surgical approaches have been utilized for the removal of nasopharyngeal angiofibromas, including transnasal, transpalatal, transzygomatic, and transcervical accesses, in addition to lateral rhinotomy and mid-facial degloving, with or without extension to the upper lip or concomitant craniotomy 9.

Methods We analyzed 20 patients with nasopharyngeal angiofibroma who underwent surgery in the otolaryngology service between and Case 3 Case 3. Proliferation, angiogenesis and hormonal markers in juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma. The classic triad of epistaxis, unilateral nasal obstruction, and a mass in the nasopharynx suggests a diagnosis of nasopharyngeal angiofibroma and is supplemented by imaging 11,12,13,14, The tumor invades the infratemporal fossa or orbit with intracranial extradural commitment.

Mesothelioma Malignant solitary fibrous tumor. Sagittal section in computed tomography scans showing site and extent of the lesion. However, no changes are found in the sexual hormones serum levels 39,42 nor changes in the JNA patients sexual maturity. Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. Patients numbers two and three see table due to the large size of the tumor was performed in the same section in two parts split in half. Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma NAJ is a tumor with vascular component, slow growing, benign but very aggressive because of its local invasiveness.

First evidence of genetic imbalances in angiofibromas. Sociedade Brasileira de Otorrinolaringologia. Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma contain a angiogenic growth factor: As each chromosome X expresses almost invariably one gene for the AR androgen receptor, the gain of chromosome X results in gain of gene AR Malignant transformation of a nasopharyngeal angiofibroma.

The presence of prominent flow voids lead to a salt and pepper appearance on most sequences and are characteristic 5,6.

Growth factors and receptors in juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma and nasal polyps: In the 17 angiofiboma who underwent endoscopic approach alone, the mean operation time was min and the mean blood loss was mL; none required replacement of blood products. Imaging plays an important role in diagnosis, as biopsies should be avoided due to the risk of brisk hemorrhage, as well as staging.


These classifications are very important in helping surgeons decide the appropriate surgical approach. Recent advances in the treatment of juvenile angiofibroma.

Anterior bowing of the posterior maxillary wall, due to invasion of the pterygomaxillary angiofibrkma on axial CT, known as the Holman-Miller anviofibroma is one of the characteristic findings.

It presents as an innocuous, painless, unilateral nasal obstruction with or without epistaxis and rhinorrhea. Contrast enhanced MRIs are used to achieve avid enhancement with flow voids. The central portions of the tumor are more fibrous with a minor number of vessels that fuse and form more expanded vessels.

It shows very aggressive behavior due to local invasiveness and is associated with various symptoms. Evaluation of the effectiveness of preoperative embolization in surgery for nasopharyngeal angiofibroma.

We started the first surgical dissection of the tumor through a unciform process incision, anterior and posterior ethmoidectomy with wide exposure of the lamina papyracea and the ethmoid roof. Kaklamani VG, Pasche B.

Type I includes lesions fundamentally localized to the nasal cavity, paranasal sinus, nasopharynx, or pterygopalatine fossa.

Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma

Maurice M, Milad M. Intraoral view showing swelling on the upper left side of the maxilla and obliteration of the vestibule. Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. A surprising number of mastocytes was found in the JNA Angiofibromas originating outside the nasopharynx may appear as an intraoral mass in the retromolar or buccal space area.
