Abstract

An osteoma is a relatively common benign mass found in paranasal sinus lesions and is usually asymptomatic. On the other hand, pneumocephalus associated with a frontal or ethmoid sinus osteoma is rare and may cause serious complications. We present a case of pneumocephalus associated with a frontoethmoid sinus osteoma and porencephaly along with a literature review.
