Frontal sinus osteoma complicated by palpebral abscess: case report.
Acta Otorhinolaryngol Ital. 2004 Dec; 24(6):357-60.AO

Abstract

Osteomas of the paranasal sinuses are slow-growing, benign tumours most frequently found in the frontal sinus with an incidence that varies from 47% to 80% of the cases; there are often no symptoms and they are diagnosed by chance during an X-ray examination. When there are symptoms, they are usually headaches and ocular or neurological complications. The treatment of choice is surgery. A case of frontal osteoma complicated by frontal sinusitis and by a palpebral abscess is described.
