Zusammenfassung

Die Verfasser veröffentlichen den Fall einer jungen Frau, die an einem ethmoïdo-orbito-fronto-maxillaren Osteom, mit einseitigem Exophthalmus und Anosmie, gelitten hatte. Der Tumor, der 110 g. wog, wurde in einer Sitzung entfernt, und zwar durch eine kombinierte Methode: zuerst wurde auf craniellem Wege eine Dura-Plastik vorgenommen und dann, auf nasalem Wege, die Tumormasse fertig präpariert und entfernt. Drei Jahre nach der Operation geht es der Patientin gut. Sie hat keine Diplopie und die Röntgenbilder zeigen kein Recidiv des Tumors.

Résumé

Les auteurs rapportent le cas d'une jeune femme atteinte d'un ostéome ethmoïdo-fronto-orbito-maxillaire qui avait provoqué une exophtalmie unilatérale et l'anosmie. La tumeur pesant 110 grs a été enlevée au cours d'une seule opération par une voie d'abord combinée: temps crânien d'abord (avec plastie de la duremère) puis temps nasal avec extirpation de la masse tumorale. La malade se porte bien trois ans après l'intervention; il n'y a plus de diplopie et les radiographies ne montrent pas de récidive tumorale.

Riassunto

Gli autori presentano il caso di una giovane donna che presentava un osteoma etmoido-fronto-orbito-mascellare del peso di 110 gr con esoftalmo ed anosmia. La paziente fu trattata con successo chirurgicamente in una seduta con metodo combinato: prima stadio endocranico (con plastica durale) e poi approcio nasale. Attualmente a più di 3 anni di distanza dall'intervento la paziente è in buone condizioni di salute, non vi è più diplopia e l'esame radiologico non dimostra segni di recidiva del turnore.

Resumen

El tumor fue operado en una sola sesión mediante una tecnica combinada con un tiempo craneano (con plastia de la dura) y un tiempo nasal.
