  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Voluminous mucocele of frontal sinus with superior eyelid and orbit expansion].
  • INTRODUCTION: A mucocele is an unusual benign cystic tumor, frequently seen in the adult and affecting mucous sinuses that expand the orbit by bone destruction.
  • It is caused by a lack of sinus aeration; surgical treatment consists in cyst extirpation and sinus drainage.
  • DESCRIPTION: A 72-year-old man, without a history of sinus disease, presented a voluminous mucocele of the right frontal sinus that had begun 3 years before, with superior eyelid and orbit expansion hiding and pushing the eye to the downside and the outside.
  • The cyst was surgically removed via the external approach without sinus drainage because of a lack of technical means resulting from the total destruction of the anterior and severe thinning of the posterior wall of the right frontal sinus with dura mater exposure.
  • CONCLUSION: A mucocele of the frontal sinuses can show major superior eyelid development with a low risk of trochlea injury during surgery, a possibility particularly if the destruction of the anterior wall of the frontal sinuses is opened ahead of the orbit septum.
  • Sinus drainage was not undertaken for our patient because of the substantial destruction of the posterior wall of the frontal sinus, with a high risk of infection.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Anterior craniofacial resection - for paranasal sinus tumors involving anterior skull base.
  • It allows wide exposure of the complex anatomical structures at the base of skull permitting monobloc tumor resection.
  • The series included 15 malignant tumors of the nose and paranasal sinuses and 3 extensive benign lesions.
  • All tumors were resected by a combined bi-frontal craniotomy and rhinotomy.
  • Recurrent tumor growth or systemic metastasis occurred in 3 out of 15 patients with malignant tumors, 6 months to 2 years postoperatively.
  • Craniofacial resection was thus found to give excellent results with low morbidity in malignant lesions and can also be adapted for benign tumors of anterior skull base.

5. Banhiran W, Casiano RR: Endoscopic sinus surgery for benign and malignant nasal and sinus neoplasm. Curr Opin Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg; 2005 Feb;13(1):50-4
MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Nasal Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Endoscopic sinus surgery for benign and malignant nasal and sinus neoplasm.
  • PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Endoscopic sinus surgery has become widely accepted as the standard of treatment for chronic inflammatory diseases of the paranasal sinuses unresponsive to medical treatment.
  • With increased skill with endoscopic surgical technique, advanced technologies such as intraoperative imaging systems, and a better understanding of the complex anatomy of the paranasal sinuses and surrounding vital structures, many otolaryngologists have increasingly applied their expertise in endoscopic sinus surgery to the resection of nasal and sinus neoplasms.
  • The following represents a review of the recent literature on the latest trends regarding endoscopic resection of nasal and paranasal sinus neoplasms.
  • RECENT FINDINGS: There has been an increasing popularity in the removal of nasal and paranasal sinus neoplasms through an endoscopic approach.
  • In the recent literature, emphasis has been on the endoscopic surgery of benign tumors, especially inverted papilloma and nasopharyngeal angiofibroma.
  • Other benign neoplasms have also been reported, but only in small case reports.
  • Especially for the more common benign neoplasms, such as inverted papilloma and early stage angiofibroma.
  • Large tumor size, intracranial or orbital extension, and extensive frontal or infratemporal fossa involvement are relative, but not absolute limitations.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Solitary fibrous tumor of the nose and paranasal sinuses].
  • [Transliterated title] Solitärer fibröser Tumor der Nasenhaupt- und Nasennebenhöhlen.
  • OBJECTIVE: The solitary fibrous tumor is an uncommon, benign lesion with a mesenchymal origin which arises most commonly from the pleura and, in extremely rare cases, from the mucosa of the nose and paranasal sinuses.
  • PATIENT AND METHODS: We describe a case of solitary fibrous tumor in the nasal cavity with an extension into both ethmoid sinuses and destruction of the nasal septum in a 64-year-old woman presenting with nasal obstruction and frontal headache.
  • In the histopathologic examination and by immunohistochemistry, the tumor was composed of spindle cells and nodular collagen, and was confirmed as a solitary fibrous tumor.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Solitary fibrous tumor should be included in diagnostic considerations in patients with sinonasal masses, especially in cases with the appearance of spindle cells.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Frontal skull base surgery combined with endonasal endoscopic sinus surgery.
  • To prevent complications from postoperative infection, we combined endonasal endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) with the frontal transbasal approach in patients with skull base lesions.
  • METHODS: Patients (n = 16) with anterior skull base lesions extending to the paranasal or nasal cavity underwent surgical resection via the frontal transbasal approach.
  • RESULTS: The frontal transbasal approach combined with endonasal ESS was performed in 16 patients with frontal skull base lesions.
  • There were 8 malignant tumors, 6 benign tumors, and 2 mucoceles.
  • Although 11 patients had preoperative active paranasal sinusitis, most frequently at the ethmoid sinus, none experienced postoperative infection.
  • Furthermore, leakage of CSF and extracranial residual tumor were not found.
  • CONCLUSION: Endonasal ESS after frontal skull base surgery is a highly useful technique for preventing postoperative infection, especially for the cases with large skull base tumors extending into other regions involving the paranasal sinuses or nasal cavity and with active paranasal sinusitis.

  • [Title] Endoscopic treatment of benign tumors of the nose and paranasal sinuses: a report of 33 cases.
  • BACKGROUND: The endoscopic approach can be used successfully for the treatment of benign tumors such as fibroosseous and vascular lesions, pleomorphic adenoma, glioma, meningioma, and schwannoma.
  • METHODS: Thirty-three patients diagnosed with benign tumors of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses and treated using an endoscopic approach were reviewed retrospectively.
  • The endoscopic approach was simple in 28 cases and associated with an external approach in 5 cases (because of an intracranial extension of the tumor in four patients and its location at the level of the anterior wall of the frontal sinus in the last case).
  • CONCLUSION: In selected cases, endoscopic surgery can be considered an effective treatment for the resection of benign tumors involving the sinonasal tract.

  • Osteomas are benign tumors that consist mainly of mature compact or cancellous bone.
  • The authors report a case of an ivory osteoma of the paranasal sinus in a 16 year-old male patient.
  • The lesion was located in the left paranasal sinus (frontal, ethmoidal and maxillary), obstructing the nasolacrimal duct, resulting in dacryocystitis and frontal mucocele.
  • After tumor removal and drainage of frontal and ethmoidal sinuses, the bone flap was repositioned using titanium microplates and screws.

  • [Title] Iatrogenic metastasis of a benign meningioma to the periosteum at the site of previous craniotomy: a case report.
  • As far as we know, the presented case is the first report in the literature of iatrogenic seeding of a benign meningioma to the scalp following surgery.
  • A 37-year-old woman was admitted because of a relapsing meningioma in the frontal lobe.
  • At follow-up, three new masses were found: a bifrontal meningioma on the edge of the falx, a smaller one in the falx just under the saggital sinus and a small mass, believed to be ectopic, in the periosteum at the site of the previous craniotomy.
  • Histologically, the ectopic tumor was an atypical meningioma, similar to the one excised 10 years previously, with no relation to the other two intracranial masses.
  • Because of the histological similarity and the location in the old craniotomy, the ectopic tumor was believed to have developed from an implantation metastasis as a consequence of the first surgery.
  • The authors suggest that strict adherence to oncological principles should be applied in the case of benign neoplasms in order to prevent contamination of wounds with tumor cells and potential recurrence.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • INTRODUCTION: Sino-nasal inverted papilloma is a rare benign tumor of the nasal fossa and the paranasal sinuses for which the successful surgical treatment by an endonasal approach has been corroborated in the literature.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Endoscopic endonasal surgery is a validated surgical approach for the treatment of sino-nasal inverted papilloma in that total tumor removal is possible.
  • This approach is particularly indicated in medially-situated papillomas without frontal or maxillary extension.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Angiofibroma of the nasal cavity and anterior ethmoid cells--problems in differential diagnosis].
  • It is a relatively rare benign fibrovascular tumor originating in the posterior lateral wall of the nasopharynx with only a very few cases diagnosed in females.
  • Diagnosis based on histopathologic examination with immunochemical staining (vimentin, actin, desmin, S-100 protein).
  • CT of paranasal sinuses in frontal and axial plains--left nasal cavity filled with a solid pathologic tissue.
  • In the left anterior ethmoid cells extension of the tumor could be seen.
  • Surgical treatment--tumor has been surgically resected with no complications.
  • CONCLUSION: Although angiofibroma in females is an extremely rare tumor of a sinonasal tract it should be taken into consideration in the differential diagnosis of all nasal cavity tumors (especially solitary fibrous tumor).
  • It is not possible to make differential diagnosis on physical examination.
  • The only way to confirm the diagnosis is histopathologic examination with immunochemical staining.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Osteomas are relatively common, benign, slow-growing, often asymptomatic neoplasms of the paranasal sinuses occurring mainly in the frontal and ethmoid sinuses.
  • Surgical removal is done if they extend beyond the boundaries of the sinus, continue to enlarge, are localized in the region adjacent to the nasofrontal duct, or if signs of chronic sinusitis are present and, regardless of size, in symptomatic tumors.
  • Most commonly involved was the frontal sinus (11 cases, including a giant tumor comprising both frontal sinuses and 2 osteomas penetrating to the orbit), followed by ethmoid cells (3) and maxillary sinuses (2).
  • RESULTS: One osteoma was diagnosed in the sphenoid sinus.
  • Eight open procedures were performed to remove frontal and maxillary osteomas, five tumors were removed under endoscopic guidance, and four via combined procedures.
  • Giant frontal sinus osteomas can be effectively approached by a combined external and endoscopic procedure.
  • Obliteration of the sinus is not mandatory if the mucous membrane is intact.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (IPEH) is an abundant, usually intravascular, benign endothelial proliferation that may mimic angiosarcoma clinically and histopathologically.
  • He complained of a 1-year history of left-sided nasal obstruction accompanied by unilateral rhinorrhea, repeated epistaxes and frontal headache.
  • Endoscopic surgery was used to clear this uncommon tumor in the sinonasal cavity.
  • Awareness of this lesion will prevent incorrect diagnosis and overly aggressive treatment.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Twenty-one cases were treated with anterior craniofacial approaches: Frontal subcranial combined with total maxillectomy in 8 cases or/with orbital exenteration in 5 cases, combined with lateral rhinotomy in 1 cases, combined with naso translocation with medial maxillectomy in 7 cases.
  • RESULT: Of the 27 malignant cases the 3 and 5-year survival rates were 81.9% (22/27) and 62.9% (17/27) respectively, and one tumor free case living well more than 9 years.
  • There were no recurrence in 10 cases with benign tumor.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Various craniofacial approaches except lateral rhinotomy provide directly satisfactory tumor exposure and facilitate enbloc resection of the naso paranasal sinus tumor with intracranial extension.
  • Partial or total maxillary swing combined with naso pyramid translocation is good for tumor involving the skull base without intracranial invasion.
  • The fronto-nasal pyramid translocation is good for removal of the upper part of nasal tumor with intracranial extension on well developed frontal sinus.
  • The fronto orbital approach is proper for removal of fronto-sphenoid tumor and midface degloving may be used in selected cases.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: We analyzed the histopathological characteristics of 39 cases of IP using the following parameters: site of origin of tumor; presence of bone invasion; presence of inflammatory polyp; ratio of endophytic to exophytic lesions; ratio of neoplastic epithelium to stroma; presence of hyperkeratosis; presence of squamous epithelial hyperplasia; mitotic index; number of mucin globules; and number of eosinophils.
  • Multiple recurrences (without malignancy) were related to frontal sinus origin (p=0.042), increase in hyperkeratosis (p=0.041), the presence of squamous epithelial hyperplasia (p=0.044) and increase in the mitotic index (p=0.031).
  • Clinically benign behavior was related to the presence of inflammatory polyp (p=0.010) and the absence of hyperkeratosis (p=0.008).
