Angiographic variant in juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma

D. W. Shrewsbury, W. L. Meyerhoff

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A 17‐year‐old male with juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma was found, on preoperative evaluation, to have a normal selective angiogram of the internal and external carotid artery system. Possible explanations for this variant include and atypical blood supply from the vertebral artery system, the thyrocervical trunks, or from an ascending pharyngeal artery that branched low from the external carotid artery.
