• The pediatrician is often the first physician to see the patient afflicted with a nasopharyngeal angiofibroma. This benign but dangerous tumor is unique because of its exclusive affinity for male children, its consistent location in the posterior nares-nasopharyngeal area, and its tendency to invade the base of the skull in a significant percentage of cases. We review the concepts of cause and natural history and discuss methods of diagnosis and treatment.
