Postoperative hemorrhage is an unlikely complication of adenotonsillectomy and occurs within several days following the procedure. We describe a patient with postoperative hemorrhage after adenotonsillectomy in nasopharynx at the postoperative 15th and 18th day. The study reveals that bleeding after adenotonsillectomy is an unlikely complication for the surgeon and patient, and requires extra experimental instruments such as endoscopy. Hence, it is best to observe the patient until blood levels stabilize and bleeding stops.
Key words: Adenoidectomy, tonsillectomy, adenotonsillectomy, epistaxi
