Abstract

Background: Inflammatory pseudotumours are mostly seen in the lung, and occasionally in the head and neck region including the sinonasal area. Reported treatment modalities comprise corticosteroid treatment, surgical excision and radiotherapy. The latter option is required because wide surgical resection may be difficult for head and neck lesions, especially in children. However, clinicians should be aware of the risk of late-onset side effects of radiotherapy in children.Case report: We present a two-year-old girl with a massive inflammatory pseudotumour of the maxillary sinus. Transcatheter arterial embolisation was performed, and the lesion was successfully managed without additional therapy. There was no evidence of recurrence over the next five years.Conclusion: This is the first report presenting the utility of arterial embolisation for inflammatory pseudotumour.
