Nasal septal hemangioma is a disease entity which is found most commonly at the anterior part of the nasal septum. The etiology of the nasal septal hemangioma remains controversial. But its development appears to be the result of post-raumatic proliferation of local blood vessels. It is generally an isolated finding, not part of a systemic disorder. In general, the best method of treatment is a wide resection of the tumor with a cuff of underlying mucosa and perichondrium. We present three cases of septal hemangioma which were presented as unilateral epistaxis. They were completely removed with laser photocoagulation under the endoscopic approach. The postoperative course has been gone well without recurrence.
