Abstract

A pregnant lady in her third trimester presented with a rapidly growing right-sided nasal mass associated with epistaxis and nasal obstruction for two months. Examination showed a non tender, protruding mass completely occluding her right nostril. Wide surgical excision was done under local anaesthesia. Histopathology revealed capillary haemangioma. In a gravid patient with a rapidly growing intranasal lesion, capillary haemangioma should be considered as a differential diagnosis. Due to the rapidity of growth, presentation with epistaxis and its macroscopic appearance which often mimics malignancy; histologic confirmation is crucial.
