There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA) is a benign vascular tumor that appears in the nasal cavity. Although it is non-malignant (not cancerous), it can expand quickly and extensively. JNA can spread into a variety of compartments in the head – including the sinuses, the orbit (where the eye is located), and the brain – which can make it very difficult to treat.
Due to the complexity of juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma, children with JNA are treated at Boston Children’s Hospital by an integrated multidisciplinary team to address all aspects of the disease. Your first visit and primary team will be located in Otolaryngology. However, your full treatment team will include a wide range of experts, including specialists from Interventional Radiology and hematology/oncology specialists within the Vascular Anomalies Center and the Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center. A neurosurgeon may also be involved.
Although we are a pediatric center, patients with JNA are monitored and treated at Boston Children’s into early adulthood until recurrence risk or the disease itself has resolved.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
