Introduction The ENT specialist in a tropical environment is very often confronted with nosebleed. It is the revealing sign of a general or local disease. The objective of this work was to study the different etiological factors and therapeutic aspects of recurrent nosebleed encountered in our service.

The causes of recurrent epistaxis were: Subatrophic rhinitis 36 cases (48%), Arterial hypertension 13 cases (17.34%). Nosebleed originated in majority of the anterior part of the septum in 55 cases (73.33%), and was primarily unilateral in 41 cases (54.66%). In most of the patients in the study 39 cases (52%) bleeding sedation has been obtained in the majority in cases by the lubricants of the nasal mucosa.
