Angiofibroma Group—Southeast Asia: Concept, research and outcome


The Angiofibroma Group, Southeast Asia, is a global research group dedicated to innovations in angiofibroma. It was founded in 1994 with an inspiration from an angiofibroma patient. A major boost to the group came in 2008. The headquarters and secretariat of the angiofibroma group is in Agra, India. The aim of the group is to provide a platform to conduct, present, publish and promote research, exclusively in the field of angiofibroma.
