OSTEOMA OF THE FRONTAL SINUS: REPORT OF A CASE

OSTEOMA OF THE FRONTAL SINUS: REPORT OF A CASE Abstract The term osteoma is applied to tumors composed of bone and should be limited to true neoplasms. The tumors thus designated may be of 2 types: an ivory-like structure and a soft cancellous one, the former being the more common. True osteoma must be differentiated from the exostosis, the enostosis and the hyper-ostosis, and the criteria by which this can best be done are found in clinical features. INCIDENCE Osteoma of an accessory sinus of the nose is uncommon in my experience (limited to a single case). Many authors have stated that it is relatively common; no one of them, however, has reported a large series of cases.Osteoma of the frontal sinus occurs most frequently.

Abstract

Abstract The term osteoma is applied to tumors composed of bone and should be limited to true neoplasms. The tumors thus designated may be of 2 types: an ivory-like structure and a soft cancellous one, the former being the more common. True osteoma must be differentiated from the exostosis, the enostosis and the hyper-ostosis, and the criteria by which this can best be done are found in clinical features. INCIDENCE Osteoma of an accessory sinus of the nose is uncommon in my experience (limited to a single case). Many authors have stated that it is relatively common; no one of them, however, has reported a large series of cases.Osteoma of the frontal sinus occurs most frequently. Arnold1 in 1873 reported 2 cases and described his surgical treatment. In 1938 Malan2 collected 458 cases of osteoma of the accessory sinuses of the nose; the involved areas were the frontal sinus in References 1. Cited by Harris.6 2.
