Mucocele

Mucocele

The maxillary sinus on the right side is completely obliterated by this cystic, multiloculated mass. This mucoclele extends fills the upper nasal cavity on the right and is displacing the orbital contents. Needle drainage may be attempted first. However, surgical evacuation of the mucocele may be required.
