Abstract:
Fibrous dysplasia of inferior turbinate, middle turbinate, and frontal sinus. Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is a non- neoplastic fibro-osseous lesion. Paranasal sinus involvement is infrequent. Involvement of the frontal sinus, sphenoid sinus, and middle turbinate is rare, and only sporadic cases have been reported in the literature. Nasal turbinates and especially the inferior turbinate are the least involved bones of the craniofacial region. To the best of our knowledge, only one case with McCune-Albright syndrome had FD of the inferior turbinate. Here, we report a rare case with FD of infe- rior and middle turbinates and review literature concerning FD of the craniofacial region.
