Paranasal sinus osteomas are rare, slow-growing and benign lesions with potentially serious complications. They usually remain asymptomatic but when osteomas grow they can lead to local complications and cause evident aesthetic deformity due to the direct mass effect and in these situations, surgery is required. This is a report of a 30-year-old man with a rare giant post-traumatic osteoma that occupies the right nasal fossa, ethmoidal cells and frontal sinuses with extension into the right orbit.

 


 

Paranazal sinüs osteomları, potansiyel olarak ciddi komplikasyonları olan nadir, yavaş büyüyen benign lezyonlardır. Genellikle asemptomatik kalırlar, ancak osteomlar büyüdüğünde lokal komplikasyonlara yol açabilirler. Direkt kitle etkisiyle belirgin estetik deformiteye neden olarabilirler ve bu durumda cerrahi gerekir. Bu yazıda, sağ nazal fossa, etmoid ve frontal sinüsleri  doldurup, sağ orbitaya uzanan, travma sonrası gelişmiş,  nadir  dev osteomu olan, 30 yaşında bir hasta sunuldu.
