Objective: Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA) is a benign tumor that most commonly affects males in adolescent age. Although it is the most common tumor of nasopharynx, it accounts for 0.05-0.5% of all the head and neck neoplasms. Several treatment modalities are used. Surgery with preoperative embolization is the recently preferred management. Different agents may be used for preoperative embolization.

Case: Hereby, we reported diagnosis, follow-up and treatment management of two patients with nasopharyngeal angiofibroma who were operated by nasal endoscopic surgical approach following preoperative polyvinyl alchohol (PVA) embolization, in the light of the contemporary literature.

Conclusion: The preoperative PVA embolization in treatment of JNA is safe, easy to perform and valid.

Keywords: Angiofibroma, embolization, nasopharynx, polyvinyl alchohol
