JOURNAL TITLE: An International Journal Clinical Rhinology
Concha bullosa is the most common anatomic variation of osteomeatal complex region that is generally seen in the middle turbinate (MT).
A 25-year-old male presented with headache and nasal obstruction. Computed tomography (CT) scan documented right paradoxical MT. The right MT also showed aerated concha bullosa with narrow right osteomeatal area. Routine preoperative laboratory tests were within normal limits.
This case of concha bullosa in paradoxically bent MT was reported, described, and could be safely managed endoscopically. Patient was symptom free up to date without any complication, recurrence, or other pathology.
Computed tomography may easily identify such uncommon anatomic variations of the osteomeatal region. This directs the surgeon attention to these variations as a cause of headache and osteomeatal area obstruction.
