Endoscopic view of a septated concha bullosa by ProQuest


Chronic rhino sinusitis may occur in association with a concha bullosa when the middle meatus is subsequently narrowed.1 Powered instrumentation has been used successfully as a tool for opening and partially removing a concha bullosa, thereby reducing the width of the middle turbinate and allowing for access to the middle meatus if needed.2 Because its development is related to the ethmoid sinus, a concha bullosa can exhibit various patterns of drainage into the middle meatus of the nasal cavity.3,4 This case illustrates an interesting anatomic variation of a septated concha bullosa.
