    * Missing sphenoidal sinuses * Absent frontal sinuses * Absent sphenoidal sinuses * Thick adherent pericardium * Enlarged liver * Prominent neck veins * Fibrous dysplasia[checkorphan.org] […] hands * Large feet * Long head * J-shaped sella turcia * Triangular face * Frontal bossing * Small tongue * Decreased retinal pigmentation * Crowded teeth * Missing frontal sinuses[checkorphan.org]

  • Mucocele of the Sphenoid Sinus

    Onodi cell) 8 Frontal Sinus Paired asymmetric sinuses Absent unilaterally in 12% and bilaterally in 5% Drainage: Frontal ostium Nasofrontal duct Frontal recess Ethmoid infundibulum[slideplayer.com] 9 Sphenoid sinus Lies in the center of the head - Above : optic nerve and pituitary gland - Laterally: orbital apex, cavernous sinus, carotid arteries - Posterior: basillar[slideplayer.com]

  • Frontal Sinusitis

    Sinus development begins in the womb, the maxillary and ethmoid sinuses are present at birth. Sphenoidal sinuses are present at birth as well but are very small.[en.wikipedia.org] Synonym: rhinosinusitis Introduction The paranasal sinuses refer to the frontal, maxillary, sphenoidal and ethmoidal sinuses.[patient.info] Approximately 5% of people have absent frontal sinuses. [3] Function [ edit ] Through its copious mucus production, the sinus is an essential part of the immune defense/air[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Sphenoid Sinusitis

    Isolated sphenoid sinusitis in children may present with headaches resembling migraine.[pediatricneurologybriefs.com] The typical symptoms of sinusitis, with nasopurulent discharge and fever, are frequently absent.[pediatricneurologybriefs.com] Facial tenderness was absent in all cases, and nasal congestion occurred only in patient 3, with chronic headaches.

  • Cleidocranial Dysplasia

    Additionally, there may be poor or absent pneumatisation of paranasal, frontal and mastoid, sphenoid sinuses [9].[jocr.co.in]

  • Carcinoma in Situ of Sphenoid Sinus

    Lee et al 10 found only 25% of their isolated invasive sphenoid fungal sinusitis to be acute, and only 4 cases over 12 years, highlighting the rarity of this distribution.[thepermanentejournal.org] Furthermore, all the patients in that situation presented with visual disturbances, which were absent in our patient.[thepermanentejournal.org]

  • Sinus Barotrauma

    Synonym: rhinosinusitis Introduction The paranasal sinuses refer to the frontal, maxillary, sphenoidal and ethmoidal sinuses.[patient.info] These develop as diverticula from the nasal mucosa and are rudimentary or absent at birth, only expanding rapidly during the eruption of permanent teeth and again at puberty[patient.info]

  • Aplasia or Hypoplasia of Halluces

    Ethmoid, sphenoid, and frontal sinuses were normal [ Figure 1 ].[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Evaluation of coronal and axial views revealed that the maxillary sinus of the right side was completely absent in all of the cuts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
