Abstract

Lobular capillary hemangioma is a benign, rapidly growing lesion of the skin and mucous membranes. It may rarely present as a mass that entirely fill the nasal cavity with an unknown etiology. Although it has no predilection for age, it is more common in the third decade and in females. Lobular capillary hemangioma usually involves the gingiva, lips, tongue, and buccal mucosa. The nasal cavity is a rare location. The most common symptoms are nasal obstruction and epistaxis. The treatment is nasal endoscopic surgery even for large lesions as it does not require embolization preoperatively. We present a case report of a 45-year-old male patient with lobular capillary hemangioma who presented with epistaxis and nasal obstruction. The diagnosis of capillary hemangioma must always be kept in mind when discussing the differential diagnosis of a rapidly growing bleeding mass of the nasal cavity even though it is a rare entity.
