Mucoceles of the frontal ethmoid and sphenoid sinuses



Mucoceles of the frontal ethmoid and sphenoid sinuses



Otologia Fukuoka 31(Suppl. 1): 352-357



Although mucoceles of the frontal, ethmoid and sphenoid sinuses are less commonm than those of the maxillary sinuses, patients in the former group suffer from a wider variety of symptoms than those in the latter. Eyeball disturbances are generally accepted as one of the most important symptoms. Nineteen cases of frontal, ethmoid and sphenoid sinus mucoceles were treated surgically over the past 3 yr from November, 1981 to December, 1984. Data obtained from these cases are discussed. Origin of the mucoceles was found in 13 cases of frontal sinuses, 4 cases of ethmoid sinuses and 2 cases of sphenoid sinuses. Four cases were recognized as primary cysts and 15 cases were secondary cysts. These mucoceles were found relatively frequently in patients in their thirties and forties, and the male to female ratio was 13:6. Many of the secondary cyst cases were initially operated on in their teens. There were a few cases who complained of nasal symptoms. Rhinogenic visual disturbances were found in 1 case of posterior ethmoid sinus and in 2 cases of sphenoid sinus.
