Abstract

Organized hematoma of nasal cavity has been reported previously in several articles. However, few studies reported the cause of organized hematoma. Recently, 22-years-old male who underwent coblation associated turbinoplasty one year ago visited our clinic with symptom of nasal obstruction. He was diagnosed as organized hematoma in left maxillary sinus. We performed endoscopic sinus surgery and successfully removed it. Therefore, we report a case of organized hematoma origin from maxillary sinus after coblation associated turbinoplasty.
