Capillary hemangioma of the sphenoid sinus excision through the endonasal endoscopic approach*
Background: Sinonasal hemangiomas are rare, especially hemangiomas of the sphenoid sinus, for which very few cases have been reported.
Observation: We report the case of a 20-year-old patient who had consulted for epistaxis associated with headache. A CT scan of the nose and sinuses revealed a heterogeneous tumor process filling the sphenoid sinus. A minimally invasive endonasal surgery under endoscopic guidance allowed complete removal of the tumor. The histological study of the surgical specimen had revealed capillary hemangioma. After 27 months of decline, no recurrence was noted.
Conclusion: Capillary hemangioma is very rare in its sphenoidal location. Endonasal endoscopic excision allows optimal control, after a good pre-operative evaluation.
Key words: hemangioma, sphenoid sinus, endoscopic endonasal surgery
