what is the embryology of the frontal sinus?
- 4mos fetal life → frontal recess
- Last sinus to develop, not usually formed at birth
- Anterior ethmoid invaginates into frontal bone at 2 years → grows at 1.5mm/yr
- Growth completed by age 20
What are the borders of the frontal recess?
- Anterior → frontal "beak"
- Posterior → ethmoid bulla
- Medial → middle turbinate
- Lateral → lamina papyracea
What are Kuhn's cells & what are the types?
- Types of cells found in frontal recess/sinus that can alter the frontal sinus drainage pathway
- 4 types
- 1) agger nasi
- 2) frontoethmoidal
