Osteoma is a benign, slow-growing osteoblastic lesion. It is the most common benign tumor of the sinonasal tract. The frontal sinus is the most frequently involved anatomic site followed by the ethmoid, the maxillary sinus, and, more rarely, the sphenoid sinus. As osteomas are usually asymptomatic, they are very often incidental radiographic findings. Giant osteomas of the paranasal sinuses are rare but readily extend into the intraorbital or intracranial cavity, causing serious complications. A rare case of large ethmoidal osteoma in a 34 year old male with extensive intraorbital involvement is being discussed.
