Summary : Introduction and case description: Paranasal sinus mucoceles are uncommon masses caused by a trauma, surgery, chronic inflammatory disease or infection. Although they are benign lesions, their localisation and degree of expansion into surrounding structures can cause a variety of symptoms. Only a few cases of pterygopalatine fossa mucoceles have been repor­ted in the literature and neurologic symptoms are also very rare. Methods: Case report and review of the literature. Discussion: We presented a complication of a mucocele in a 19-year-old boy. He previously underwent Lefort I maxillary osteotomy and had unexpected and persistent symptoms of trigeminal neuralgia involving the right maxillary division. CT scan and MRI revealed a right pterygopalatine mass, extending in the pterygomaxillary fossa and leading to a compression of the trigeminal nerve. He underwent an endoscopic endonasal surgery and marsupialisation of the lesion. Pathology confir­med the diagnosis of mucocele. The post-operative course was free of complication and the patient noted a completed resolu­tion of his facial pain. Conclusion: Although this is a very rare situation, a mucocele should be included in the diffe­ren­tial diagnosis of a mass of the pterygopalatine fossa in a patient with a clinical presentation of trigeminal neuralgia.
