Research output: Contribution to journalConference abstract in journalResearchpeer-review


Concha bullosa is a common variation of the anatomy of the concha media which typically involves concha
media, but also concha inferior and superior. In this case we present a giant concha bullosa in a young girl,
as a unique variation.
Furthermore we bring a systemized review of giant concha bullosa reports, to understand the origin of the
pneumatization within the nasal turbinates, the association with sinusitis, the contact with the
osteomeatale complex, ethmoidale bullae, onodi cells and agger nasi cells. Most important is the contact
with basis crani and n. opticus which leads us to discuss the treatment and risks.
