Juvenile Nasopharyngeal Angiofibroma is a rare and locally aggressive benign tumor. It is characterized by high vascularization leading to spontaneous bleeding or massive hemorrhage. We reported a case of 13 years old boy with a swollen at the right face, nasal congestion, recurrent nose bleeding, hyposmia, headache, breathing difficulty, and a nasopharyngeal mass at CT scan. Angiography examination showed a highly vascularized mass which was successfully occluded through preoperative embolization procedures. It is suggested that imaging modalities is not only playing an important role in diagnostic process, but also as an adjunct treatment approach in patient with Juvenile Nasopharyngeal Angiofibroma.
