Epistaxis as an unusual presentation of an antrochoanal polyp

  • A. K. Robson (a1), C. S. Barker (a2) and H. B. Whittet (a1)

Abstract

Antrochoanal polyps rarely present with severe epistaxis. We present the case of a young male patient who presented in such a manner, thus leading to the suspicion of an angiofibroma as the underlying pathology. The radiological investigations, treatment and pathological features are discussed.
