ABSTRACT
Aim: The authors hereby present a case of giant frontal-ethmoid sinus osteoma which is not so rare but in the present case, the size and orbital involvement of this tumor make it a unique case.
Introduction: Paranasal sinus osteoma most commonly presents in frontal sinuses. Their growth is slow, and patients usually seek physician’s advice only for cosmetic reasons.
Case Description: A 20-year-old female presented to us with the complaint of proptosis of left eye near medial canthus for last 6 months. After investigations, she was diagnosed with frontal-ethmoid sinus osteoma, which was excised by endoscopic approach. There was dense, compact bone and broad trabeculae of mature bone i.e. compact osteoma which was confirmed on histopathology.
Conclusion: Paranasal sinus osteomas are slow-growing bony tumors, which are amenable to complete cure provided adequate preoperative planning and conscientious surgical technique is used.
