The most significant risk is blindness, for patients with occlusion angiofibrroma the ophthalmic or middle cerebral artery through the collateral circulation. These classification systems are based on examination methods, including CT, MRI, and endoscopy, and have been utilized to establish the extent of the tumor, its pattern of spread, and consequently, surgical planning 10,11,12,16,17,18, Androgen receptor, juvenile angiofiborma, nasopharyngeal angiofibroma.

Intracranial extension can however occur.

They account for only 0. Received Jul 15; Accepted Jun 1. The third patient with a Fisch I tumor underwent surgery with embolization, but without clamping of the external carotid arteries. Treatment trends in patients during 40 years. Case 2 Case 2. Several reports suggest that JNA regresses over time. Detection of residual tumor on postoperative follow-up was the criterion for reoperation.

Arterial embolization in the management of posterior epistaxis. JNA is an uncommon, highly vascular, locally invasive, unencapsulated tumor with a distinct predilection for an origin in the nasopharynx of adolescent males.

Extraoral examination revealed normal appearing overlying skin. Blood vessels were seen in large number at the periphery of the lesion [ Figure 5 ]. Additional information Further information on this disease Classification s 2 Gene s 0 Other website s 3. Surgical treatment of JNA is fraught with technical angiofibro,a, including the risk angilfibroma intraoperative bleeding, difficulties in tumor dissection, and morbidity associated with the involvement of certain anatomic sites, as well as the risk of recurrence.


Surgery of cranial base tumors.

On examination, it may be seen as a pale reddish-blue mass. JNA is benign but locally destructive. Intracranial juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma. Although slowly progressive, it has a high rate of recurrence and sometimes invades adjacent structures.

Recent advances in the treatment of juvenile angiofibroma. Case 4 Case 4.

Exclusively endoscopic surgery for juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma. However, most authors agree that JNAs arise from the posterior choanal tissues in nasap region of the sphenopalatine foramen. Intracranial extension, residual vascularity; M: Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. This tumor originates in the lateral wall of the nasal cavity, close to the superior border of the sphenopalatine foramen.

Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma

JNA being an aggressive tumor may recur posttreatment. Bony erosion of the nasal cavity, hard palate and pterygoid plates is also common. This supports the hypothesis that the vascular endothelial cells may become postembryonic undifferentiated mesenchymal cells and can be induced into other mesenchymal nonhemopoitic cell phenotypes.

Angiofibroma; Endoscopy; Video-assisted surgery; Recurrence; Intraoperative complications; Postoperative complications.

Plain radiographs no longer play a role in the workup of a suspected juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma, however they may still be obtained in some instances during the assessment of nasal obstruction, or symptoms of sinus obstructions.


Intricate mixture of stellate and staghorn blood vessels with variable vessel wall thickness ranging from single layer of endothelium to variable smooth muscle coat Irregular fibrous stroma loose, edematous to dense, acellular Stromal cells are stellate fibroblasts with small jasal to large vesicular nuclei Larger vessels at base of lesion, smaller vessels with plump endothelial cells at growing edge of tumor Multinucleated stromal cells are common Mitotic figures are rare Minimal inflammation.

Improvements in surgical techniques are designed to shorten surgical time and thereby reduce patient morbidity. However, there is angiofibromq consensus in the literature regarding the complications of surgical treatment of JNAs with intracranial extension. We also found that patients who underwent clamping of the external carotid artery and embolization showed less intraoperative bleeding than patients who underwent embolization alone.

InFriedberg called it juvenile angiofibroma.

The first patient who underwent surgery in our department had a Fisch I tumor, but did not undergo embolization or clamping of the external carotid arteries.

Eventually, the tumor may invade the infratemporal fossa and the middle cranial fossa. Other search option s Alphabetical list.
