Abstract

Actinomycosis of the paranasal sinuses is rare and usually arises from the oral cavity after a dental procedure or trauma. Actinomycosis of the maxillary sinus is very rare and found only in isolated case reports. We report the case of a 62-year-old patient with actinomycosis accompanied by a fungal ball in the maxillary sinus.
