Abstract

Antrochoanal polyp (ACP) is a benign, solitary polypoidal lesion arises from the maxillary antral mucosa that traverses through the ostium to the choana extending in a variable extent to the naso/oropharynx. It is usually unilateral and appears mainly in adults and rarely in children. It should be on differential diagnosis of any patients with nasal obstruction and chronic nasal discharge. Nasal endoscopy, computed tomography (CT), cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are the main diagnostic techniques. Complete endoscopic surgical removal from the antral portionis recommended to prevent recurrence. Here a 4-year-old child of antrochoanal polyp that underwent functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) with complete clearance from the maxillary antrum is presented.
