Abstract

Lobular capillary hemangioma (LCH) is a benign lesion of unknown etiology. LCH is a rapidly growing lesion usually affecting skin and oral mucosa. It is known to be relatively rare in the nasal cavity or sinuses. LCH bleeds easily even with a little irritation because of its excessive vascularity. Hormonal imbalance and microtrauma are known as the major etiologic factors in the development of LCH. The authors experienced a case of multiple LCH in the nasal cavity, which was completely removed with endoscopic approach. According to the literature review, there has been no case report on multiple lobular capillary hemangioma occurring in the nasal cavity. Therefore, the authors report a case with a review of literatures.
