ABSTRACT
Nasal lobular capillary hemangioma is a rare benign tumor of the paranasal sinuses. This lesion is believed to grow rapidly in size over time. The exact etiopathogenesis is still a dilemma. We discuss a case of nasal lobular capillary hemangioma presenting with a history of epistaxis. Contrast enhanced computed tomography of paranasal sinuses revealed an intensely enhancing soft-tissue mass in the left nasal cavity and left middle and inferior meati with no obvious bony remodeling or destruction. We present imaging and pathologic features of nasal lobular capillary hemangioma and differentiate it from other entities like nasal angiofibroma.

46-year-old female with intermittent episodes of nasal bleeding diagnosed with lobular capillary hemangioma. Contrast enhanced computed tomography of paranasal sinuses, axial section shows a lobulated well-circumscribed intensely enhancing soft-tissue mass (white arrow) filling the left nasal cavity.

Figure 2: 46-year-old female with intermittent episodes of nasal bleeding diagnosed with lobular capillary hemangioma. Contrast enhanced computed tomography of paranasal sinuses, axial section shows a lobulated well-circumscribed intensely enhancing soft-tissue mass (white arrow) filling the left nasal cavity.

Mentions: Plain and contrast enhanced computed tomography (CT) of the paranasal sinuses revealed a lobulated, well-circumscribed, intensely enhancing soft-tissue mass filling the left nasal cavity [Figures 1 and 2]. Epicenter of the lesion was seen to be in the nasal cavity and it was closely attached to the nasal septum with no erosion or remodeling of underlying bones [Figure 3]. A diagnosis of hemangioma or angiofibroma was made. Embolization was performed prior to surgery to prevent bleeding.
