Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibromas are benign yet aggressive anterior skull base tumors that occur almost exclusively in male adolescents. Diagnosis is typically made through radiographic findings and clinical characteristics; biopsy is not recommended due to the vascular nature of the disease. As with most tumors, there is a spectrum of tumor extent and invasion. In juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibromas, one of the most important components of extent is the vascular supply. Once the vascular supply is identified, a systematic approach to resection can be planned. The majority of these tumors can be excised endoscopically, and those approaches are the focus of this article.
