Nous rapportons l’observation exceptionnelle d’un homme de 38 ans ayant un hémangiome capillaire de siège exclusivement ethmoïdal, dont l’exérèse complète a pu être réalisée par une double voie d’abord, haute et basse.

Les hémangiomes capillaires sont des tumeurs vasculaires, bénignes et rares, qui intéressent surtout la peau de la tête et du cou, ainsi que les muqueuses orale et nasale. Aucune atteinte ethmoïdale pure n’a été rapportée dans la littérature. Le traitement de choix est chirurgical et doit assurer l’exérèse complète de la lésion. Le pronostic est alors bon et le risque de récidive est faible.

Capillary hemangioma of the ethmoid sinus. Case report and review of the literature

We report the rare observation of a 38-year-old man diagnosed with capillary hemangioma exclusively involving the ethmoid sinus. Complete resection was obtained via ethmoid endoscopy combined with an intracranial approach.

Capillary hemangioma is a rare and benign vascular tumor in adults primarily developing in the skin and subcutaneous tissues of the head and neck, and/or within oral and nasal cavities. No hemangioma exclusively involving the ethmoid sinus has been previously reported.

Complete resection is the treatment of choice, providing a favorable prognosis with low risk of recurrence.
