Keywords: Conebeamcomputedtomogr aphy, retention cysts, inflammatory mucosal change. Objective:The aim of present study is, by retrospectively assessing the CBCT images, to evaluate the prevalence of chronic maxillary sinusitis, inflammatory mucosal change (IMC), retention cysts (RC), and maxillary sinus pathologies, which is considered as the sum of them, among the CLP patients, and to compare it to that of control group patients having no craniofacial syndrome. Materials and methods: 36 CLP

Results: 15 (20.8%) of the patients in control group and 7 (10%) of CLP group were found to have chronic sinusitis, 5 (6.9%) of the patients in control group and 15 (21.4%) of CLP group were found to have IMC, 5 (6.9%) of the patients in control group and 13 (18.6%) of CLP group were found to have retention cyst. Conclusions: Prevalence of retention cysts was higher among the CLP patients when compared to control group. There was no statistically significant difference between CLP patients and control group in terms of the prevalence of chronic maxillary sinusitis and IMC
