Epistaxis is defined as bleeding from the nose and it is only a symptom of various diseases. This prosaic definition belies the difficulties associated with one of otolaryngology’s most common and most difficult to treat emergencies. Fortunately these episodes are usually minor resolve spontaneously and do not require any medical attention. Conversely they may be more severe, ranging from recurrent episode precipitated by minor trauma to major episodes of bleeding that can be life threatening. This study shows that medical line of management is the main modality of treatment in majority of the cases.
