Unilateral Pansinusitis

This patient presented with six month history of gradually progressing nasal obstruction. CT shows complete opacification of left side sinuses. Soft tissue cuts were suggestive of Fungal mass because of heterogeneous opacities. To my surprise, it was just thick secretions in Frontal, ethmoid and sphenoid sinus. The nose and maxillary sinus was filled up with very thick walled mass with secretions inside.
Lesson: Thick secretions can mimick as fungal mass.
