Abstract

Lobular capillary hemangioma (LCH) in the nasal cavity, previously known as pyogenic granuloma, is an extremely rare benign vascular tumor in infants. LCH is a rapidly growing lesion that has a bleeding tendency due to its excessive vascularity. The authors experienced a case of LCH of the nasal cavity in a 2-month-old infant that was totally resected via the endoscopic approach after preoperative embolization. Therefore, we report this case with a brief review of the literature.
