High-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma of maxillary sinus.

Daryani D, Gopakumar R, Nagaraja A - J Oral Maxillofac Pathol (2012)

Bottom Line: Nonsquamous cancers of the maxillary sinus are even rarer as is evident from the limited data available on the clinical characteristics and outcomes.Mucoepidermoid carcinoma accounts for 13% of all malignancies occurring in maxillary sinus.We report a rare case of high-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma of maxillary sinus in a 45-year-old female along with review of the literature.

ABSTRACT
Malignant tumors of the paranasal sinus are uncommon, constituting less than 1% of all malignancies and 3% of all head and neck cancers. Nonsquamous cancers of the maxillary sinus are even rarer as is evident from the limited data available on the clinical characteristics and outcomes. Mucoepidermoid carcinoma accounts for 13% of all malignancies occurring in maxillary sinus. We report a rare case of high-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma of maxillary sinus in a 45-year-old female along with review of the literature.

Figure 3: CT scan (coronal section) revealing contrast enhanced lesion in right maxilla involving, superior, medial, lateral, and inferior borders of maxilla

Mentions: Computed tomography of right maxilla revealed an extensive contrast enhancing lesion in maxillary sinus with a soft tissue density (H.U. 74) and measuring 6 × 5.4 cm. Coronal and axial sections revealed a primarily osteolytic lesion destroying orbital floor superiorly, medial and lateral wall of maxillary sinus (medially and laterally) and hard palate inferiorly. However other sinuses, pterygoid plates and pterygoid muscles appeared normal [Figure 3].
