Abstract: Tumors of the paranasal sinuses are rare. Most patients present with an advanced stage of the disease because initial symptoms are often ignored or thought to be due to other less serious conditions that may affect the head and neck region. In the nasal and paranasal sinus regions, squamous cell carcinoma is one of the most common tumor. A rare case of squamous cell carcinoma of maxillary sinus involving orbit is discussed. Patient had undergone complete ophthalmic & endonasal examination. Relevant blood investigation, Neuroimaging (CT plain & contrast) were performed. A Wedge biopsy of mass tissue was sent for histopathological examination & to plan for further management.
