Abstract

Aspergillosis is the most common fungal infection of the paranasal sinuses and usually appears as a chronic disease in an otherwise healthy person. The number of reported cases of aspergillosis in the nose and paranasal sinuses has increased: while previously reported cases have involved the maxillary sinus alone in the majority of cases, reports of the isolated frontal sinus aspergillosis is rare. We present a case of frontal sinus aspergillosis which was successfully treated by endoscopic sinus surgery with a review of literature.
