A 57 yr old male† presented to the department of ENT at King Edward Memorial Hospital, Mumbai, India, in May 2019, with a right cheek swelling, nasal obstruction, epistaxis and paraesthesia [Figure 1]. Endoscopy revealed a fleshy nasal mass [Figure 2]. Imaging was suggestive of an encapsulated heterogeneous lesion within the maxilla with erosion of the sinus walls [Figure 3]. Biopsy was suggestive of a haemangioma. Complete excision via lateral rhinotomy incision [Figure 4] was performed, and the final diagnosis of angiomatous polyp was made by histopathological confirmation [Figure 5]. The patient was followed up after one month with a well-healed facial scar [Figure 6].{Figure 1}{Figure 2}{Figure 3}{Figure 4}{Figure 5}{Figure 6}

Angiomatous polyps are rare variants of sino-nasal polyps which mimic malignancy. Surgical excision yields a positive outcome with less morbidity.
