LUGO, Humberto Joaquín et al. Giant frontoethmoidal mucocele. An. Fac. Cienc. Méd. (Asunción) [online]. 2022, vol.55, n.2, pp.112-117. ISSN 1816-8949.

We present the case of an 18-year-old male patient with a large right frontoethmoidal mucocele, postoperatively on two previous occasions, who came to our department due to worsening diplopia. Physical examination revealed a downward and outward displacement of the eyeball. Imaging studies, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging were performed that suggested a right frontoethmoidal mucocele. A type Draf III sinusotomy was performed to drain the lesion, with improvement of the symptoms.

Keywords : mucocele; paranasal sinuses; frontal sinus; giant mucocele..
