Leiomyoma of the paranasal sinuses

J Laryngol Otol. 1993 Aug;107(8):740-1. doi: 10.1017/s0022215100124302.


The paranasal sinuses are a rare site for tumours of myogenic origin. There has been only one previously reported case in the English literature. We present a case of a leiomyoma filling the anterior ethmoid sinus and middle meatus which was excised via a Patterson's external ethmoidectomy.
