We consider that the physicians in the previous clinics might have missed the Thornwaldt's cyst in our patient since they might have inadvertently focused on the ostiomeatal complex instead of the nasopharynx in endoscopic examinations.
Inflammation of the sinonasal mucosa leads to obstruction of the ostiomeatal complex (Stammberger 1986) coupled with gravity and decreased mucociliary clearance, and inspissation of secretions occurs in the sinuses forming a culture medium for bacterial growth.
The etiology of the disease is based on the primary predisposing factor, which is an obstruction of the ostiomeatal complex that results in hypoventilation of the maxillary sinus gases.
Computed tomography scans of paranasal sinuses showed opacity and widening of ostiomeatal complex but his ears were normal.
Significant mucosal thickening in all paranasal sinuses and complete occlusion of the ostiomeatal complex on the left were confirmed by computerized tomography of the nose and paranasal cavities.
In contrast, ostiomeatal complex opacification at CT scans was found in two thirds of the cases.
The ostiomeatal complex (OMC) is a functional entity of the anterior ethmoid complex that represents the final common pathway for drainage and ventilation of the frontal, maxillary and anterior ethmoid cells.
The ostiomeatal complex - the common drainage pathway for the frontal, anterior ethmoidal and maxillary sinuses - is particularly sensitive to this and affected most commonly.
An ideal surgical correction of the nasal septum should satisfy the following criteria 1) should relieve nasal obstruction (2) should be conservative (3) should not produce iatrogenic deformity (4) should not compromise the ostiomeatal complex (5) must have the scope for a revision surgery.
Although endoscopic sinus surgery was originally intended to address the ostiomeatal complex in sinusitis, (1) its use has extended to other indications, including dacryocystorhinostomy, (2) pituitary gland surgery, (3) and excision of sinonasal tumors.
Presence of CB not only limits the exposure of surgical field, but may also block ostiomeatal complex (OMC) and, hence, sinus disease.
