Lobular capillary hemangioma occurs as a mass in the oral or nasal cavity in approximately 5% of pregnant women, although its occurrence in the nasal cavity is very rare. A pregnant woman in her 39th gestational week visited our clinic suffering from nasal obstruction and frequent epistaxis. Clinical examination and computed tomography of the nasal cavity revealed a soft tissue mass arising from the caudal aspect of the nasal septum. The mass still existed after she gave birth, and surgical resection was performed.
