X-ray image for osteoma of the frontal sinus

Protocol: On the presented X-ray of the paranasal sinuses, the pneumatization of the left maxillary sinus is slightly reduced, in the left the frontal sinus visualizes a dense formation (darkening) with smooth edges of an irregular shape in density equal to the surrounding bone fabrics. There is no periosteal reaction, the border with the surrounding tissues is clear and even.

Conclusion: X-ray signs of left-sided sinusitis, formation (osteoma?) Sinus frontalis. Confirm with CT.

This formation is most likely benign (there is no involvement in the pathological process of the periosteum and bone destruction). However, it can cause chronic headaches that tend to increase over time with active tumor growth.

Cephalalgia in this case will have localization in the frontal region, sufficiently pronounced intensity and pressing, bursting character, requires frequent use of painkillers, irradiation to the eye area is possible and nose bridge.
