A 66-year-old male presented with right-sided facial pain and headache since one year. MRI brain showed a large bony lesion in right side of maxillary sinus. CT scan of the paranasal sinuses revealed maxillary sinus osteoma. The tumor was excised through an opening made in anterior wall of maxilla along with endoscopic guidance through nasal cavity. Postoperative period was uneventful. The pathogenesis and various treatment modalities for maxillary sinus osteomas have been discussed.
