Introduction  A pneumatized turbinate, also called concha bullosa, is a normal anatomical variant of the paranasal sinus region. Depending on the site of pneumatization, the concha is classified into extensive, bulbous or lamellar type. The middle turbinate concha bullosa has been implicated as a possible etiological factor in chronic sinusitis. Objectives  The aim of this study was to investigate the anatomical variations of the concha bullosa, based on paranasal sinus imaging, and its possible association with sinusitis...

OBJECTIVE: A pneumatised middle turbinate is called concha bullosa. It has been classified according to its extension in the coronal plane. We propose the first classification according to the axial extension of pneumatisation of the middle turbinate. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Bulbous concha bullosa was classified in six categories according to the degree of pneumatisation of the body of the middle turbinate in the axial plane. RESULTS: 196 CT sinonasal scans were included...

A 10-year-old girl presented with episodes of migraine. A nasal mass was found randomly during work-up. Interpreted as an osteoma, the mass was removed during endoscopic surgery. However, the histopathological examination turned out to be a pyomucocele in the right middle turbinate, which is an extremely rare yet benign condition in children.

OBJECTIVE: Concha bullosa is generally regarded as pneumatisation of the middle turbinate in the nose. However, pneumatisation may also be seen in the superior and inferior turbinate. Computed tomography (CT) of paranasal sinuses is extremely helpful for the examination of this inaccessible area. Coronal CT sections of paranasal sinuses are particularly useful for surgical anatomy, as these images show nearly the same regions as the endoscopic examinations. The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the presence, incidence and unilaterality-bilaterality of superior turbinate pneumatisation and concomitant nasal pathologies...

A concha bullosa forms when the middle turbinate becomes pneumatized, which is a common anatomic variation; however, fungus ball in concha bullosa is rather rare. An otherwise healthy 52-year-old man presented to our ear, nose and throat clinic with the complaints of midfacial pressure headache and malodorous postnasal drip. Computed tomography of the paranasal sinuses demonstrated a polypoid hyperdense lesion with slight microcalcifications in the right nasal cavity, accompanied with a complicated fluid collection in the right frontoethmoideal recess seen as hypodensity in contrast to this hyperdensity...

PURPOSE: Synechiae formation in the middle meatus is the most common complication of functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS). Our objectives were to determine the incidence of synechiae occurring in a cohort of patients that have undergone FESS and identify characteristics associated with the development of synechiae postoperatively. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was conducted of CRS patients, with or without nasal polyposis, that had undergone bilateral FESS in the past...

Common anatomic variants of the middle nasal turbinate include its pneumatization (i.e. concha bullosa media) and its paradoxical curvature. We report here two cases of differently combined variations of the middle turbinate which were documented in cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). The first report presents the vertical combination of a double or septated lamellar concha bullosa with the paradoxical curvature of middle turbinate. This combined variant associated (coincidental findings): ipsilateral paradoxical superior turbinate and contralateral paradoxical middle turbinate, concha bullosa superior and concha bullosa suprema...

Autoimmune bullous diseases (AIBD), including pemphigus, bullous pemphigoid, epidermolysis bullosa acquisita, mucous membrane pemphigoid, and pemphigoid gestationis, pose significant therapeutic challenges, especially in pregnant and post-partum breastfeeding patients or those planning to conceive. Data on the safety and efficacy of therapeutic interventions during the perinatal period are lacking because randomized controlled trials are typically not performed in this setting. However, many of the treatments for AIBD are also used in other diseases, so data can be extrapolated from studies or case reports in these other patient populations...

Rhinogenic contact point headache (RCPH) is a headache syndrome secondary to mucosal contact points in the sinonasal cavities, in the absence of inflammatory signs, hyperplastic mucosa, purulent discharge, sinonasal polyps, or masses. It may result from pressure on the nasal mucosa due to anatomic variations among which the septal deviation, septal spur, and concha bullosa, are the most commonly observed. In recent years, RCPH has remained a subject of controversy regarding both its pathogenesis and treatment...
