Because it is a highly vascular tumour, juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA) is also known as bleeding fibroma. In prepubescent and young adults, this is a benign tumour that is locally aggressive and bleeds. Due to the potential space available in the nasopharyngeal area, the tumour spreads without much resistance. JNA necessitates an early and precise diagnosis using cross-sectional modalities in the context of clinical symptomatology. This will aid in early management and help to prevent a variety of future issues.
We report two JNA examples in which the importance of contrast enhanced computed tomography (CECT) is highlighted. These two cases of teenage nasopharyngeal angiofibromas (JNAs) were diagnosed using CECT reformatted reconstructed 3D pictures at different phases.
Conclusion: In making a diagnosis, we place a high importance on the clinico-radiological assessment. For surgical management, proper pre-operative radiographic staging is essential.
