Cavernous hemangioma rarely arises in the maxillary sinus. A 64-year-old woman was referred to our hospital because of diffuse swelling of the right cheek. CT and MM showed bone destruction of the maxillary sinus. Clinical examination revealed a malignant lesion. Biopsy was done. Histological examination confirmed a diagnosis of hemangioma. We performed operation to extirpate the mass after arterial embolization via the maxillary artery.
