Rhabdomyosarcoma of the Paranasal sinus accounts for 10% to 15% of adult head and neck Rhabdomyosarcoma. We presented a 32-year-old man with a month history of the right eye vision loss and had no common symptoms as nasal obstruction or headache. The adult patients, who have nasal symptoms along with eye complaints, should be examined with nasal endoscopy by an otorhinolaryngologist and Rhabdomyosarcoma must be kept on mind in terms of differential diagnosis.
