[Asymptomatic osteoma of the frontal sinus with intracranial invasion as a cause of post-traumatic pneumocephalus].Vestn Otorinolaringol. 1996 May-JunVO
A rare case of frontal sinus osteoma growing intracranially in a female of 38 is reported. The disease ran without any otorhinolaryngological or neurological symptoms until the sinus blunt injury followed by headaches resistant to analgetics and other neurological signs. Computed tomography discovered osteoma involving the cerebral cranium and pneumocephalus in the right cranial fossa. Management of patients with paranasal sinuses should account for possible intracranial complications and CT control of the tumor growth is very much desired.
