Clinical report: cylindrical cell papilloma of the paranasal sinus
We report a case of cylindrical cell papilloma of the paranasal sinuses. This tumor originated in the medial wall of the left maxillary sinus of a 69-year-old man and extended to the surrounding tissues. Pathological study of tissue sections from the tumor showed typical findings of cylindrical cell papilloma with no evidence of associated malignancy. Histochemical and electron microscopic examinations revealed a large number of mitochondria in the cytoplasm of the tumor cells. The tumor was removed through a Denker's approach. The patient did well following surgery and there has been no sign of recurrence in a 2-year follow-up study.
