Nasal lobular capillary haemangioma (CH), also known as pyogenic granuloma, is a benign lesion of unknown etiology commonly associated with pregnancy, oral contraceptive pills, and trauma. Marked by epistaxis and nasal obstruction, the condition involves benign capillary proliferation with a microscopically distinctive lobular architecture, affecting the skin and mucous membranes of the oral cavity and nasal region. This aim of this article is to report a case of lateral nasal capillary haemangioma in a 39-year-old female, who presented in our facilities having experienced spontaneous epistaxis on the left side of the nose for the previous three months. Endoscopy revealed a protruding left intranasal mass arising from the lateral nasal wall in the region of the middle turbinate and osteo-meatal complex. The patient underwent endoscopic excision of the mass and did excellently well thereafter with no recurrence.
