OBJECTIVE Isolated sphenoid sinus aspergilloma (ISSA) is a rare disorder that is difficult to diagnose in a timely manner. These lesions can also extend to adjacent structures and thereby cause severe complications. ISSA patients with orbital complications typically have a poor prognosis even when surgical interventions have been successful. We here reviewed 30 ISSA cases with respect to clinical characteristics and treatment outcomes. METHODS A group of 30 patients diagnosed with ISSA… Expand
Skull base erosion and associated complications in sphenoid sinus fungal balls
TLDR
Endoscopic sphenoidotomy is effective in treating SSFB and should be performed emergently in patients who presented with associated complications if not treated appropriately, according to a retrospective review. Expand
Sphenoidal Aspergillosis in an Immunocompetent Patient
TLDR
In this case of an immunocompetent 16-year-old woman with no specific medical history who presented with severe chronic headache, retro orbital pain, associated with nasal obstruction, the diagnosis of aspergillosis of the sphenoid sinus was confirmed. Expand
Surgical treatment of isolated sphenoid sinusitis - A case series and review of literature.
TLDR
Reoperation rates reported in the literature are probably underestimated and the importance of long-term follow-up for highly inflammatory and chronic conditions such as fungal diseases could be linked to an increase in the occurrence of relapses. Expand
Unusual coincidence of a pituitary adenoma and an aspergilloma of the sphenoid sinus
TLDR
A 60 year old man presented with acute visual impairment and had no immunosuppression, and a hormonally inactive pituitary adenoma and an aspergilloma of the sphenoid sinus was diagnosed. Expand
Sphenoid sinus aspergilloma in trans-sphenoidal surgery for pituitary adenomas
TLDR
Sphenoid sinus aspergilloma can be found during trans-sphenoidal surgery for pituitary adenomas and is the treatment of choice unless invasive asperGilloma is encountered requiring additional antifungal therapy. Expand

TLDR
Despite the benign nature of the disease, there is a risk of complications with high morbidity and mortality, and early and, if necessary, aggressive therapy to guarantee drainage of the sinus is recommended. Expand

TLDR
Given the high prevalence of noninflammatory lesions within the sphenoid sinus, thorough preoperative evaluation is imperative and should include nasal endoscopy and computed tomography to help define the location, extent, and character of the lesion. Expand
