Case Reports in Otolaryngology
19 Jan, 2019 ,

This is a 64-year-old woman with a paranasal sinus microsurgery history more than 30 years ago, who presented with headache and purulent rhinorrhea. A glass tubular structure was discovered in the ethmoid complex. She underwent functional endoscopic sinus surgery. Since glass is an inert material that doesn’t cause foreign body reaction, the patient may not present any symptom or sign.
