A rare case of mucocele confined to the right pterygoid process.
Cayetano Sempere Ortega, Juan Martinez San Millan
Mucoceles are benign, slow-growing, locally expansive masses within cavities and filled with mocous. They typically arise in the paranasal sinuses and the frontal and ethmoidal sinuses are the most frequent location. We present the computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of a rare case of mucocele occupying the whole right pterygoid process (PP). These imaging findings, location and behavior of a mucocele have, to our knowledge, never been reported before.
