In recent years, endoscopic sinus marsupialization has become the treatment of choice for the treatment of paranasal sinus mucoceles due to its noninvasiveness and successful outcome. However, mucoceles located at the lateral portion of the frontal sinus and protruding into the orbit with erosion of the frontal sinus floor arestill difficult to address with standard endoscopic sinus surgery techniques. Here, we report a case of a mucocele located atthe lateral side of the frontal sinus and successfully marsupialized with a transblepharoplasty approach combined with an endoscopic approach.
