Over pneumatization of the paranasal sinuses is a fairly common finding on computerized tomography; but involvement of a small segment of the maxillary sinus especially the anteromedial aspect is very rare. We report a case of a twenty year old male who presented with a facial swelling. On CT scan, the swelling was found to be due to pneumatization of the anterior part of the maxillary sinus. Surgical treatment was carried out for cosmetic reasons.
