Abstract

Hemangioma is the most common vascular disorder. But it occurs very rarely in the paranasal sinus, particularly the maxillary sinus. It is not easily observed unlike that of the nasal cavity. It can be misdiagnosed as other diseases and the massive bleeding may occur during surgery. Therefore thorough preoperative evaluation is needed to prevent the complication such as bleeding occurring during operation. We present a cavernous hemangioma arising from the maxillary sinus combined with nasal polyp in a 14-year-old woman with the literature review.
