dc.descriptionA mucocele is “a cystic cavity with mucoperiosteal walls, which are in turn lined with cuboid respiratory epithelium exhibiting chronic inflammatory alterations”.1 Paranasal mucoceles most commonly develop in the frontal sinus and consist of sterile mucus and shed cells. They are chronically expanding lesions, which develop after inflammatory changes or nasofrontal duct obstruction secondary to traumatic or post-interventional scarring. Gradual expansion can cause thinning and destruction of the enclosing bony walls of the frontal sinus.1 Concurrent infection may occur and lead to acute exacerbations of symptoms, including headache. Most paranasal sinus mucoceles develop in the frontal sinus (77%), followed the by fronto-anterior ethmoidal (14%), anterior ethmoidal (5%), maxillary (3%) and posterior ethmoidal (1%) sinuses.2en
