Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma is vascular tumor found in adolescent males. With development of endoscopic fraternity, tumor can be addressed successfully with endoscopic approach; but one needs maximum exposure for large angiofibroma with local infiltration around. Maxillary and mandibular swing technique for removal of the tumor gives excellent exposure and good control on vascularity of the tumor.

Postoperative follow-up for 1 year has shown minimal visible scar, cosmetic deformity in the patient.
