A Case of Capillary Hemangioma of the Nasal Septum in a Patient With Chronic Ischemic Heart Disease and Antiplatelet Treatment Non-Suspendable

Marco Capelli, Patrizia Gatti


The capillary hemangioma is a benign vascular tumor, fast-growing, which can occur in the skin, mucosa, glands and bone. In some cases it is localized in the head and neck. A more typical nasal localization appears to be the anterior portion of the nasal septum, known as locus Valsalvae or area of Little. This tumor causes a progressive nasal obstruction and recurrent epistaxis. Like all bleeding vascular tumors, hemangiomas may lead to a state of dangerous anemia in patients with heart disease. We present the case of a patient with a capillary hemangioma of the nasal septum and chronic ischemic heart disease, in treatment with antiplatelet agents, non-suspendable, and subjected to surgical removal of the tumor.
