Multiple osteomas in the frontal and ethmoid sinuses: a case report



Multiple osteomas in the frontal and ethmoid sinuses: a case report



Kulak Burun Bogaz Ihtisas Dergisi 17(2): 108-111



Osteomas are the most common benign tumors of the paranasal sinuses. They may be seen at all ages and show a male preponderance. A 54-year-old male patient presented with a complaint of nasal obstruction. Computed tomography of the paranasal sinuses showed three osteomas, nearly 5 mm in size, in both ethmoid sinuses and the right frontal sinus. Inquiry into the Gardner's syndrome was negative. No surgical treatment was performed at the patient's discretion. To our knowledge, the presence of multiple osteomas in the frontal and ethmoid sinuses has not been reported in the English literature.
