Tumor Stain in Primary Sphenoid Sinus CarcinomaAs Demonstrated by Selective Internal Carotid Angiography

Arch Otolaryngol. 1975;101(8):512-514. doi:10.1001/archotol.1975.00780370054018

Selective internal carotid arteriography was performed on a patient subsequently shown at surgery to have a primary carcinoma of the sphenoid sinus. The arteriogram demonstrated supply to the tumor from numerous hypertrophied branches of the cavernous portion of the internal carotid artery and a dense tumor stain within the sphenoid sinus.

This is the first such report found in the literature.
