Abstract

The fungal ball usually occurs in a single sinus, most frequently in the maxillary sinus, and multiple sinus localization has rarely been reported? Recently, the authors experienced a rare case of multiple fungal balls involving three sinuses that were not contiguous, the bilateral maxillary sinuses and right sphenoid sinus. The patient had a history of endodontic treatment. We report this rare case with a literature review.
