Daryani D, Gopakumar R, Nagaraja A - J Oral Maxillofac Pathol (2012)

Bottom Line: Nonsquamous cancers of the maxillary sinus are even rarer as is evident from the limited data available on the clinical characteristics and outcomes.Mucoepidermoid carcinoma accounts for 13% of all malignancies occurring in maxillary sinus.We report a rare case of high-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma of maxillary sinus in a 45-year-old female along with review of the literature.

ABSTRACT
Malignant tumors of the paranasal sinus are uncommon, constituting less than 1% of all malignancies and 3% of all head and neck cancers. Nonsquamous cancers of the maxillary sinus are even rarer as is evident from the limited data available on the clinical characteristics and outcomes. Mucoepidermoid carcinoma accounts for 13% of all malignancies occurring in maxillary sinus. We report a rare case of high-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma of maxillary sinus in a 45-year-old female along with review of the literature.

Figure 1: Swelling of the right maxilla causing gross asymmetry of face

Mentions: Extra orally, a solitary diffuse swelling was noticed unilaterally on the right middle one-third of the face causing gross asymmetry of the face [Figure 1]. Swelling was irregular, measuring about 3 cm in its greatest extension, located over the malar region, extending from infraorbital rim to the ala of nose. Skin over swelling was normal.
