Abstract

A patient with chronic unilateral maxillary sinusitis caused by a foreign body (dental amalgam) and mistaken diagnosis of extensive ethmoid neoplasm is presented. The imitation of tumour symptoms was due to a long presence of foreign body in the maxillary sinus and chronic inflammation of maxillary, ethmoid and sphenoid sinuses.
