Osteomas are benign tumors characterized by proliferation of compact or spongy bone. The most common location is the
mandible, followed by the sinuses. These tumors grow slowly, are often asymptomatic, and are often discovered as
incidental radiological findings. Osteomas are mostly seen in the frontal sinus, then in the ethmoid and maxillary
sinuses, and very rarely in the sphenoid sinus.Symptoms occur when osteomas obstruct the opening of the sinus or strike
adjacent orbital or intracranial structures. A case of bilateral maxillary sinus is presented with the literature.
