Abstract

Haemangioma is one of the most common benign tumours in the ENT & Head and Neck region accounting for about 60% of haemangiomas arising from the head and neck region, either in children or adults & can arise from the larynx, nose, tongue, external auditory canal & face, which can be of capillary, cavernous and mixed subtypes.


A retrospective review of 3 patients who underwent evaluation and treatment at a tertiary referral hospital from 2020 to 2023 are presented, which were confirmed to be haemangiomas on histopathological examination. All 3 patients presented on an outpatient basis, were evaluated based on history, an endoscopic and radiological investigation followed by surgical intervention & histopathological examination which confirmed the diagnosis of haemangioma (Laryngeal Haemangioma arising from laryngeal ventricle -sclerotic haemangioma, Nasal Haemangioma 1 case of nasal septum vestibule capillary haemangioma and 1 case of external auditory canal lobular capillary haemangioma). The patient was followed up for over one year and had no recurrence.
