Introduction: Mucoceles of the paranasal sinuses are more common in the frontal sinus than other sinuses due to multifactorial causes. Their close proximity to the orbit can lead to complications like diplopia, severe proptosis or even vision diminution. CT being the modality of choice, clearly demonstrates bony walls of paranasal sinuses and the extension of a mucocele into the surrounding structures. Mucoceles can either be excised endoscopically or by external approach.
Case report: We describe our experience of three frontal mucocele cases all of which showed advanced orbital involvement and were managed successfully by endoscopic approach with no complications or recurrence. All symptoms including diplopia and proptosis significantly improved in every case. Hence, we reiterate the management of paranasal sinus mucocele via endoscopic approach as the preferred surgical modality having advantage of shorter recovery time, easy access, lower morbidity and incidence of potential complications.
