Abstract

A case of oral angiofibroma in a 14-year-old girl is presented. Unlike in earlier reports, the patient was confirmed as female by gynecological examination and other specific examinations. The possibility of the origin of the angiofibroma from the Meckel's cartilage is postulated. Any exuberant, sessile growth with a tendency toward spontaneous bleeding should be viewed with suspicion in terms of angiofibroma. Lesions such as pyogenic granulomas, hemangiomas, myxomas, and fibromyxomas should be kept in mind while making a diagnosis of angiofibroma. A biopsy examination as a routine office procedure should not be done on benign-looking masses with tendencies to bleeding.
