A 25-year-old male presented with left sided nasal obstruction and epistaxis. To study about a rare case of extranasopharyngeal angiofibroma. Endoscopic evaluation revealed a polypoid mass in the vestibule arising from the lateral wall of the nasal cavity anteroinferior to the left inferior turbinate.
