    Mucoceles are gradually expanding lesion involving paranasal sinuses. This is usually caused due to obstruction to the normal drainage channels of paranasal sinuses leading on to pent up secretions within it. These patients classically don't present with symptoms pertaining to nose and sinuses but with ophthalmological signs and symptoms. They invariably present to the opthalmologist before finding their way to an otolaryngologist.
