Organised haematoma of the maxillary sinus in patients with chronic renal failure

  • D H Lee (a1), Y E Joo (a2) and S C Lim (a1)
Abstract
AbstractObjective:

Organised haematoma of the maxillary sinus may be present in chronic renal failure patients, because these patients are at high risk of haemorrhage.

Case reports:

We present two cases of organised haematoma of the maxillary sinus in patients with chronic renal failure.

Conclusion:

A diagnosis of organised haematoma of the maxillary sinus should be considered when a patient with a history of chronic renal failure develops unilateral, recurrent epistaxis and nasal obstruction.
