Abstract

Fibrous dysplasia is a benign condition characterized by an increase in fibrous tissue and bone tissue. In the field of otolaryngology, its development is often encountered in the maxillary bone and lower jaw.<br>Here we report a case of 56-year-old male with fibrous dysplasia in the ethmoid sinus. Computed tomography (CT) revealed a space-occupying lesion of high absorption from the ethmoid sinus to the orbital area.<br>The dysplasia was totally extirpated with an external nose incision, and was diagnosed histopathologically as fibrous dysplasia of the bone. One year postoperatively, no palindromia has been observed.<br>The development of fibrous dysplasia in the ethmoid sinus is rare.
