Bilateral paranasal sinus mucoceles are rare. To date, only 5 cases have been reported in the English-language literature. All were bilaterally symmetrical. We present a patient with bilateral asymmetric mucoceles. This patient had a symptomatic mucocele of the right ethmoid sinus with orbital extension and an asymptomatic mucocele involving the left maxillary sinus with retroorbital extension. The latter was an incidental finding on radiologic evaluation. This is the first case report of bilateral mucoceles with asymmetric involvement of the paranasal sinuses.
