    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Noncontrast coronal CT scan of the paranasal sinuses;

    Coronal section 12 mm more anteriorly demonstrates perforation of the bony nasal septum, which results in a free communication between the left and right nasal cavity. The middle turbinates are missing.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Noncontrast coronal CT scan of the paranasal sinuses;

    On coronal section even more anteriorly, the anterior portion of the inferior turbinates is also missing, and the cartilaginous part of the nasal septum has completely disappeared.
