Computed tomographic evaluation of multiple mucocoeles of paranasal sinuses

  • Tsutomu Nakashima (a1), Yusuke Watanabe (a1) and Harumi Arao (a1)


There are some cases in which mucocoeles of the paranasal sinuses are multiple and their structures are complicated. When the mucocoeles are multiple, pre-operative evaluation is especially important for correct surgical management. We describe the usefulness of computed tomography for the evaluation of multiple mucocoeles of the paranasal sinuses.
