Abstract

To the Editor: In the December 1965 issue of the Archives, Osborn and Sokolovski, in a very interesting paper, described a juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma occurring in a girl. Could this lesion possibly be a neurilemoma? These tumors are found in the nose and nasopharynx occasionally, may be quite vascular, and may be mistaken for angiofibromas. I recall one such tumor in a 10-year-old boy. The biopsy diagnosis was angiofibroma, but after excision it was shown to be a neurilemoma.
