ADAM, S E  e  MERVEN, M. Sphenoid mucocoele - an unusual cause for headaches in a teenage boy. S. Afr. j. child health [online]. 2018, vol.12, n.2, pp.76-78. ISSN 1999-7671.

Isolated sphenoid sinus disease in childhood is uncommon and sphenoid mucocoeles (histologically benign, epithelium-lined, mucus-containing sacs) are rare. They are thought to arise as a result of obstruction of the sinus ostium due to previous surgery, inflammation, trauma or irradiation, but may be idiopathic. We present a case of a sphenoid sinus mucocoele in a young boy and highlight the fact that headache may be the only symptom, therefore diagnosis may require a combination of imaging and exploratory surgery.
