Antrochoanal polyp is a benign solitary polypoidal lesion which arises in maxillary sinus. It appears radiologically as an opacifying and enlarging lesion in the sinus cavity without bony destruction. They are almost always unilateral and occur more commonly in children and young adults. Here we report a case of bilateral antrochoanal polyp (ACP) in an adult because of its rarity.
