(15) Similar to the literature, in this study, the most common origin of the mucoceles were frontal sinus (54.5%) and ethmoidal sinus (27.3%), which due to the mass effect in the orbital cavity, resulted mostly in proptosis (63.6%), diplopia (54.5%), and displacement of the globe (36.4%).
Computed tomography of the sinuses showed (1) an abnormal soft-tissue process causing expansion of the right maxillary sinus with complete opacification of the right maxillary antrum, (2) widening of the right ostiomeatal complex with mucosal thickening in the right-sided ethmoidal sinus cells, and (3) no violation of the bony wails separating the sinuses from the orbit or intracranial cavity (figure 1, A and B).
A CT scan revealed that the foreign body had penetrated the left ethmoidal sinus through the medial wall of the orbit and reached the anterior skull base, with about 8 mm penetrating into the intracranial region [Figure 1]a,[Figure 1]b,[Figure 1]c.
