Fronto-ethmoidal mucocele after coronal orbital decompression

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessionalpeer-review


A patient who underwent coronal orbital decompression for Graves' orbitopathy eight years earlier presented with left-sided proptosis without signs of periorbital inflammation. Computed tomography imaging showed a fronto-ethmoidal mucocele. It is suggested that this mucocele may be a late complication of decompression surgery.
