Abstract

Epistaxis during pregnancy presents a difficult situation and its management can be complex depending on the pregnancy status and severity of symptoms. “Pregnancy Tumor” or “pyogenic granuloma” also called, as Lobular capillary hemangioma (LCH) is a benign, fibrovascular bleeding tumor, which may originate in vascular tissues of skin, muscle, glands, mucosa and bone. These are rapidly growing lesion with extensive endothelial proliferation, of unknown etiology that originate mainly from the nasal septum (65%), lateral nasal wall (18%) and nasal vestibule (16%). Pyogenic granuloma gravidarum (incidence 2% to 5%) may have similar presentation, occurring as small oral or nasal mass, which normally involutes spontaneously after childbirth.
