Abstract

Squamous cell carcinomas arising from the paranasal sinuses are often accompanied by eyeball pain, proptosis, decreased visual acuity and diplopia because of the proximity to the orbit. We report a case of squamous cell carcinoma of maxillary sinus mimicking chronic dacryocystitis and orbital cellulitis due to destruction of lacrimal apparatus.
