Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Mucoceles involving the sphenoid sinus are expansile, benign lesions that are locally destructive and may occur with a variety of signs and symptoms. Because of these characteristics, sphenoid mucoceles can mimic malignant lesions. Consequently, correct diagnosis is important for proper management. Two cases of sphenoethmoid sinus mucoceles imaged with both CT and MRI are presented. The diagnostic value of MRI for the evaluation of these lesions is discussed.
