Abstract

Introduction: Mucous retention cyst (MRC) is the most common complication of sinusitis. It rarely causes any sign or symptom. The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence and some associated risk factors of (MRC) in panoramic view in patients referring to the radiology department of Mashhad dental school. Materials &amp; Methods: In this study, panoramic radiographs of 707 patients referring to the radiology department of Mashhad dental school were examined for detection of well defined, not corticated, smooth, dome-shaped radiopaque mass in maxillary sinus for one year and mucous retention cyst prevalence and some associated risk factors such as age, sex, site of occurrence, allergy and smoking habit were evaluated. The data were statistically analyzed by chi-square and t-tests. Results: From 707 patients examined, 36 patients (5.1) had mucous retention cyst in their maxillary sinuses, 20 patients in right maxillary sinuses (55.6); 13 patients in left (31.6) and in 3 patients, MRC were bilateral (8.3). According to this study, these cysts were most common in the third and Fifth decades. The Fisher’s exact test showed that there was a statistically significant association between allergy and occurrence of MRC (P<0.001). Conclusion: The results of this study were similar to previous studies. Occurrence of MRC had a statistically significant association with allergy but the association between age, sex, smoking and presence of MRC was not significant.
