Resumen

DEMICHERI, Gabriel et al. Maxillary Sinus Mucocele: Review of case report. Odontoestomatología [online]. 2016, vol.18, n.27, pp.55-63. ISSN 0797-0374.

Maxillary sinus mucocele is a benign cyst formation that originates within the sinus and is lined by epithelium (sinus mucosa) containing mucus. It is a rare condition for which it might be very difficult to find a suitable therapeutic approach, especially when it involves the orbit, leading to exophthalmos.This study reports the case of a right maxillary sinus mucocele in a 68-year-old female patient. Through clinical examination, vestibular deformation from tooth 12 to tooth 16 was determined. Radiologic examination showed that the maxillary sinus was affected, with borders near the orbit. An excision biopsy was performed, which showed histopathological findings of maxillary sinus mucocele. Presentation and classic treatment are discussed.
