Multiple osteomas in the frontal and ethmoid sinuses: a case report

Seda Türkoğlu1, Erdinç Aydın

Osteomas are the most common benign tumors of the
paranasal sinuses. They may be seen at all ages and
show a male preponderance. A 54-year-old male
patient presented with a complaint of nasal obstruction.
Computed tomography of the paranasal sinuses
showed three osteomas, nearly 5 mm in size, in both
ethmoid sinuses and the right frontal sinus. Inquiry into
the Gardner’s syndrome was negative. No surgical
treatment was performed at the patient’s discretion. To
our knowledge, the presence of multiple osteomas in
the frontal and ethmoid sinuses has not been reported
in the English literature.
