Juvenile nasopharingeal angiofibroma (JNA) is a rare, histologically benign but clinically malign hypervascular tumor localized in the nasopharynx which occurs exclusively in adolescent boys. There is no definite attitude towards etiology of angiofibroma. in diagnostics, besides epypharyngoscopy, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are the primary diagnostic tests. Angiography is used for preoperative embolization. In this case report, we aim to demonstrate the vascularity of JNA with power Doppler sonography (PDS) and advanced vasculature was observed into tumoral lesion with PDS.
