Objective: Sinus mucoceles are true cysts that develop secondary to obstruction of sinus ostea and can be associated with significant morbidity.

Study Design: We present a case of obstructive-type sinus mucocele of the maxillary sinus, including clinical, radiographic, histologic findings, as well as treatment.

Results: An 18 year old female presented for evaluation and management of maxillary sinus swelling. A diagnosis of sinus mucocele was rendered after clinical, radiographic, surgical and histopathologic examinations. Recurrence developed within four months of the initial surgical intervention.

Conclusions: Sinus mucoceles may be associated with significant morbidity and are currently managed most often by endoscopic nasal surgery.
