Abstract

Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (IPEH) is an exuberant intravascular endothelial proliferation that in many respects mimics an angiosarcoma. A 78-year-old woman complained of a several month history of left-side nasal obstruction and frequent epistaxis. Preoperative endoscopic examination demonstrated a dark red mass occupying the left nasal cavity. The nasal cavity mass was completely removed under endonasal endoscopy. During the six-month follow-up, the patient had no evidence of recurrent disease. We present here a rare case of IPEH within the nasal cavity that demonstrated the reactive nature of this affliction.
