Abstract

A rare case of compartmentalized maxillary sinus mucocele 12 years after a Caidwell-Luc operation is reported. The two separate mucoceles were drained intranasally by endoscopic sinus surgery. The clinical features of this mucocele are presented and the incidence, presentation and theories on formation of post-operative mucoceles are reviewed.
