Abstract

Antrochoanal polyps (ACP) are benign lesions that arise from the mucosa of the maxillary sinus. Large antrochoanal polyps may extend in to the nasopharynx and beyond hyoid bone and reach almost up to the epiglottis. We present our experience of airway management for FESS in an 11-year child with a giant atypical antrochoanal polyp extending in to the oral cavity.
