Endoscopic Excision of Concha Bullosa
The anomaly in which the middle turbinate is filled with air different from normal is called "concha bullosa" or "pneumatized middle turbinate". It is mostly detected by chance. Occasionally, the sinus can block sinus orifices and cause recurrent inverse episodes or nasal congestion. Rarely, during upper respiratory tract infections, the inside may become infected with secretory secretion (Mucopyocele of Concha Bullosa).
Concha bullosa was first described by Santorinus in 1739 and is seen in 14-53% of society. Three types of cone bullosa, lamellar, bulbul and extensive, are defined.
