Abstract

Maxillary antral mucocoeles have an incidence of only 3-10%. Mucocoeles are more commonly seen in the frontoethmoidal region. We present one such rare case of a 52-year-old lady who came to us with complaints of pain and swelling of the left cheek of 4 months duration. Clinical examination and investigation revealed a giant maxillary sinus mucocoele which was duly treated surgically. We discuss its classical presentation and management since such large mucocoeles are not often seen in the maxillary sinus.
