Abstract

Objectives: Antrochoanal polyp (ACP) is a benign maxillary sinus polyp that originates from the mucosa of the maxillary sinus, passes through a sinus ostium, and extends into the choana. The common presentation of ACP is unilateral nasal obstruction. The radiographic findings and differential diagnosis of ACPs are discussed by comparing them with data in the literature.
