Giant mucocele originating
from the middle concha in a 5-year-old child: a case report
Mucoceles are mucus-filled,
epithelial-lined sacs that slowly develop in the paranasal sinuses when sinus
or concha bullosa drainage is obstructed by inflammatory processes, trauma, or
prior surgery. They are extremely rare in children. Symptoms usually arise from
the nasal obstruction or compression of neighboring structures.
This case report describes a
5-year-old Turkish boy with a 3-year history of nasal obstruction. A computed
tomography scan showed a well-defined soft tissue density lesion, seemingly
originating in the region of the middle concha and was suggestive of a middle
concha mucocele. The mass was removed by endoscopic sinus surgery.
In the case of a child presenting
with nasal obstruction, mucocele should be remembered in the differential
diagnosis of intranasal tumors. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance
imaging are helpful in making the diagnosis and endoscopic nasal surgery has
proven successful in the treatment.
