Epiphora after Inferior Turbinate Surgery
A 48-year-old man presented to our outpatient clinic with 15 days history of left-sided epiphora that started after septoplasty and B/L SMD. The clinical examination show grayish cyst under the right inferior turbinate, while no cyst was seen under the left inferior turbinate. His preoperative coronal CT-Scan demonstrated the existence of B/L moderate ‘cyst’ beneath the left and right inferior turbinate together with dilation of the nasolacrimal duct. The postoperative coronal-sinus CT failed to reveal cyst under the left inferior turbinate. Full ophthalmologic and otolaryngologic assessment was conducted for this patient.
