Angioleiomyoma is an uncommon benign tumor composed of smooth muscle cells and vascular endotheliums. It is common in the uterus and the gastrointestinal tract but rare in the head and neck. This neoplasm is extremely rare in the nasal cavity, accounting for less than 1% of all vascular leiomyomas. The tumor has a benign nature and the recurrence of tumor is rare and complete removal is the treatment of choice. We present a case of angioleiomyoma which involves the nasal vestibule and was excised by a sublabial approach.
