Purpose. To present the relevance of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) in diagnostics of nasal cavity fungus ball before surgery. Materials and methods. The clinical observation of the patient with nasal cavity fungus ball is provided. Patient’s examination included anterior rhinoscopy, forward-viewing endoscopy, and CBCT. Results. After comprehensive clinical examination of the patient including CBCT ac-curate diagnosis was established: fungus ball in the left half of the nasal cavity. Endoscopic foreign body removal had been carried out with endotracheal anesthesia. It is required to perform histological examination. Conclusion. The presented clinical case demonstrates the importance of CBCT ap-plication in pre-admission diagnostics of nasal cavity fungus ball..
