The cylindrical cell papilloma, also known as oncocytic Schneiderian papilloma, is a rare benign sinonasal neoplasm. It accounts for 2-6% of the total sinonasal papillomas. Due to its rare incidence, this disease is not well-understood by clinicians. Recently, we experienced a case of cylindrical cell papilloma which was originated from the frontal sinus with bony destruction and had extended into the anterior ethmoid sinus in a 69-year old female patient. We adopted the frontal sinus approach via eye glass incision and removed the tumor thoroughly. The anterior wall of the frontal sinus was reconstructed with Medpore(R), and we thus report on the treatment of this case, along with a review of literature.
