Objective: objective of the study was to evaluate the efficacy and Outcome of Trans nasal endoscopic approach as route for removal of angiofibroma.

To briefly study the different approaches adopted for angiofibroma.

Method: Retrospective study was undertaken of 20 patients treated for angiofibroma presenting to our department of Otorhinolaryngology, Civil hospital, Ahmedabad between Aug. 2016 till Aug. 2017.

As per review of the records, data were collected according to the Patient’s characteristics, stage of angiofibroma, surgical techniques, and complications.

Result:  Patients who undergo endoscopic trans nasal      approach had reduced intraoperative blood loss, reduced post-operative complication and reduced hospital stay.

Conclusion: Rare, benign, vascular tumour found almost exclusively in young males. Surgery is the gold standard with a trend towards endoscopic approaches. Frequent follow-up after treatment is necessary.
