Abstract

Ossifying fibromas are mainly found in the mandible and maxilla. Reports of them arising in the ethmoid sinuses and orbits are rare. We present a case of an otherwise healthy 20-year-old man with gradual onset of right visual disturbance signified by right relative afferent pupillary defect due to a large unilateral ossifying fibroma arising from the ethmoid sinus compressing the medial half of the right orbit. We emphasise the multidisciplinary combined endoscopic endonasal and external approach to ensure a successful debulking of the fibroma.
