    Introduction: Fibromyxomas are very rare benign tumors of the head and neck region. They are characterized by the replacement of normal bone by a fibrous cellular stroma. These tumors are slow-growing benign lesions, which may cause extensive local destruction with a tendency to recurrence after surgical excision.

    Case presentation: We report the case of a 52-years-old Moroccan female, diagnosed with giant nasal fibromyxoma. This case was successfully managed by a multidisciplinary team, with complete resection of the tumor after arterial embolization, allowing a good functional and locoregional control. To our knowledge, this kind of multidisciplinary approach has had never been described in the literature, with successful results.

    Conclusion: Nasal fibromyxoma, represents a rare situation. Advanced forms require multidisciplinary management, involving embolization to reduce bleeding and unsightly complications from extensive surgery.
