Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA) is a rare, benign but aggressive tumour of the nasopharynx. It occurs primarily in male adolescents. The usual presentation is either nasal obstruction or epistaxis. We present a case with complete nasal obstruction of short duration. The management is discussed with reference to the literature. Because this tumour tends to occur in men in their second decade it is an important disease to consider in soldiers.
