Abstract

Paranasal sinus mucocele represents a quite common pathologic entity, with many questions concerning the ethiology. Generally, the onset of obvious symptoms is delayed until complications appear, notably eye-related. We’ll report the case of ethmoido-orbital mucocele, successfully managed by endoscopic marsupialization, in order to accomplish the main goal: restoring ventilation and wide sinus drainage.

Keywords: ethmoid mucocele, FESS, orbital complications, endoscopic marsupialization
