Anatomic variations of the sinonasal bony framework in the pediatric population are quite common. In children with such variations, however, bony pneumatization is uncommon. Moreover, pneumatization of the inferior turbinate in children is extremely rare; to the best of our knowledge, only 3 cases have been previously reported in the literature-none of which involved additional pneumatization variations of the sinonasal skeleton. Herein we present a new pediatric case that was unique in that an inferior concha bullosa coexisted with rarely seen pneumatized anatomic structures.
