Although the head and neck is not an uncommon region, the nasal cavity is extremely rare sites for lobular capillary hemangioma (LCH) in children. The authors report a case of an 11-year-old boy with LCH of the nasal cavity presenting with nasal obstruction and epistaxis. To our knowledge, on searching the English literature, only nine cases of hemangioma of nasal cavities have been reported in children since 1985. The authors feel that it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of lesion of the nasal cavity.
