Abstract

Objective Arrested pneumatization of the skull base is a developmental anatomical variant of the paranasal sinuses. Although it is an incidental finding, severe bone lesions can be confusing in the differential diagnosis. In this study, arrested pneumatization in the pediatric group is discussed with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings.
