This is a report of a surgical approach to excise an extensive case of a Juvenile Angiofibroma in a 16 year old male. The approach consists of a midfacial degloving followed by a Le Fort I osteotomy down fracture combined with a midline palatal split. This technique facilitated an adequate access to a large nasopharyngeal angiofibroma with excellent cosmetic and functional results.
