Capillary haemangioma is a benign, rapidly growing lesion of the skin and mucous membranes. It may rarely present as a mass of considerable size and thus entirely fill the nasal cavity. Its etiology remains obscure. Capillary haemangioma usually involves the gingiva, lips, tongue, and buccal mucosa. However, the nasal cavity is a rare location for this lesion. The most common symptoms are unilateral epistaxis and nasal obstruction. The treatment of choice is surgery to remove the tumour even for large lesion. A case of capillary haemangioma at anterior nasal septal in 6 years old girl had been treated with extirpation.
