Angiofibromas are highly vascular tumors that predominantly arise from the Nasopharynx. Extra-nasopharyngeal Angiofibromas are rare, vascular or fibrous nodules occurring outside the Nasopharynx. We present a 14 year old boy who presented with mass in the left nasal cavity of 1 month duration. Examination revealed a smooth, pinkish mass arising from the lateral aspect of left nasal vestibule. The mass was excised in toto and sent for histopathological examination which confirmed it to be Angiofibroma. This case is being reported due to its atypical origin from an extremely rare site.
