Abstract

Fungus ball of the paranasal sinuses is usually found in only one sinus, most frequently in the maxillary sinus. It may produce symptoms of chronic rhinosinusitis, such as purulent rhinorrhea, nasal obstruction, headaches, and sensation of pressure. However, cases involving bilateral paranasal sinuses are rarely reported. Herein we report two cases of fungus ball in bilateral paranasal sinuses with a review of this disease entity.
