Abstract

Objectives: To investigatethe patients who underwent endoscopic sphenoid sinus surgery for isolated sphenoid sinus disease. We also evaluated the clinical characteristics and management skills of our department in isolated sphenoid pathologies.
Design: Retrospective analysis of case series.Material and
Methods: 7 patients who underwent endoscopic sphenoid sinus surgery for isolated sphenoid sinus disease. Clinical characteristics and main symptoms of patients, physical examination, radiologic findings and management aproaches were investigated retrospectively.Results: We identified 7 cases of isolated sphenoid sinus disease between January 2015 and January 2016. 3 cases with fungal infection of sphenoid sinus, 2 cases with with sphenochoanal polyp and 2 cases with mucocele were treated by endoscopic sphenoidotomy.Conclusion: Isolated sphenoid sinus pathologies are rare clinical entities. Diagnosis is based on the history, endoscopic examination and computed tomography findings. Endoscopic sphenoidotomy is a safe and easy treatment option and represented the gold standard for this disease at the present time.
