The juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma is a highly vascularised benign neoplasm of complex treatment in its surgical preparation, surgery to be performed, risks and recurrences.


The aim of the study was to determine the management and surgical treatment for the pathology of juvenile nasoangiofibroma.

Materials and methods

We reviewed the clinical histories and images of the patients who underwent surgery with a pathology result of juvenile nasoangiofibroma in the period from January 2008 to December 2016.


Sixty-one cases were treated; all of them treated using the same surgical access by means of a Le Fort I osteotomy. All of the patients were male, with an average age of 13.3 years. The Andrew–Fish classification was used for staging the cases, most were staged as grade II and I.


The described approach provided extensive surgical access, which was adequate for the different stages of the tumour. It requires experience to be able to resect the tumour with the least possible bleeding.
