In several species, in addition to a general clinical examination, some diagnostic methods can be used such as regional radiographs, sinucentesis, surgical exploration (sinusotomy
), tomography and sinuscopy; the latter is performed with rigid or flexible endoscopes (ALLISON, 1999; EMSHOFF et al., 1999; SMITH, 2006).
Another case has been reported by Jennifer L Peterson et al in 2012 where the patient underwent an extensive surgical resection, which involved a right anterior and posterior ethmoidectomy, sphenoidotomy, a maxillary antrostomy, and a frontal sinusotomy
with the removal of contents and an inferior turbinate reduction.
