J Comput Assist Tomogr. May-Jun 1989;13(3):501-3. doi: 10.1097/00004728-198905000-00026.


A patient with biopsy-proven primary mucocele of the anterior clinoid process is presented. Gadolinium-DTPA enhanced magnetic resonance imaging revealed a nonenhancing lesion isointense to gray matter. Computed tomography revealed well corticated bony margins without direct involvement of the sphenoid sinus.
