Removal is usually achieved via anterior rhinoscopy
or endoscopy, although a lateral rhinotomy approach has been required in select cases in which complete removal through the nostrils or the posterior choanae was not possible due to the large size of the mass (13).
CT scan is a better diagnostic tool to identify polyps (Allergic fungal sinusitis) than Anterior rhinoscopy
and Diagnostic Nasal Endoscopy.
7% of cases of CSOM in our study (considering anterior rhinoscopy
, X-ray PNS and DNE).
showed a deviated nasal septum to the left side and inferior turbinate hypertrophy.
detected a hypertrophic left inferior turbinate, which was bony hard on palpation.
and diagnostic nasal endoscopy recordings were done to assess post-operative complications if any.
identified a firm fullness on the left inferior lateral nasal wall.
No other significant past history was present On Anterior rhinoscopy
there was septal deviation to right side with compensatory hypertrophy of the inferior turbinates was seen.
revealed patent nares and a midline septum.
detected a pinkish polypoid soft-tissue mass filling the left nasal cavity; the mass bled on touch.
examination Revealed bilateral enlarged inferior turbinates where right side turbinate is more enlarged.
revealed a left septal deviation and nasal obstruction with profuse discharge, but no other significant pathology.
