Abstract

The antrochoanal polyps (ACPs) originate in the maxillary sinus, come to the nasal cavity usually through the accessory opening of the maxillary sinus and extend into the nasopharynx. They occur in all ages, although show more frequency in pediatric patients than in adults. The endoscopic removal is the modality of choice with reasonable success rate. If the ACPs come through the accessory ostia, these openings should be connected with the natural openings.
