A report of Thornwaldt’s cyst in four patients: the effectiveness of endoscopic approach in three symptomatic cases

We encountered Thornwaldt cysts in four patients (3
males, 1 female; age range 30 to 46 years). Three
symptomatic patients underwent endoscopic surgery.
No intervention was made in one asymptomatic
patient. Cyst-related complications included bilateral
middle ear effusion in one patient. Postoperatively, no
symptoms or recurrences were observed in a mean
follow-up period of 11 months. In the asymptomatic
patient, the cyst size remained unchanged during
eight-month follow-up.
