Aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) are non-neoplastic, highly vascularised bone lesions that rarely involve the craniofacial complex. We describe the first case of an ABC involving the inferior turbinate in a 17-month-old boy who attended our Pediatric Emergency Department because of recurrent epistaxis, and discuss the diagnostic and therapeutic work-up in children with nasal masses.

Abstract

Aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) are non-neoplastic, highly vascularised bone lesions that rarely involve the craniofacial complex. We describe the first case of an ABC involving the inferior turbinate in a 17-month-old boy who attended our Pediatric Emergency Department because of recurrent epistaxis, and discuss the diagnostic and therapeutic work-up in children with nasal masses.
