Guidera AK, Dixon PM, Stegehuis HR. Glass in the frontal sinus: 28-year delayed presentation. Ear Nose Throat J. 2013;92(10-11):E10-2.
Reports of delayed presentation of foreign bodies in the frontal sinus are infrequent and likely to become rarer with the widespread availability of computed tomography in the last 2 decades. We present a case in which glass from a road traffic injury was found in the frontal sinus, causing symptoms of frontal sinusitis 28 years after the initial injury. We also present a review of the literature.
