Bottom Line: Perforating injuries of the orbit involving the paranasal sinuses are uncommon.We report a case in which a large wooden foreign body lodged in the posterior orbit and maxillary sinus was surgically removed by a combined approach by ophthalmologists and ear, nose and throat surgeons.

Figure 0004: Foreign body, wooden stick removed from the orbit and maxillary sinus

Mentions: An inferomedial orbitotomy was done through a skin incision along the inferomedial orbital margin [Fig. 3] that included an elliptical area around the fistula. Dissection was carried out posteriorly around the fistula into the region where the foreign body was expected. Intermittent manipulation of the foreign body from the sinus end by the ENT surgeons during dissection significantly aided in localization. On completing the dissection, the foreign body, a wooden stick 3.5-cm long and 0.8 cm in diameter, was pulled out through the orbit [Fig. 4].
