Abstract

The presence of a benign osteoblastoma in the ethmoid sinus is rare and only a few cases have been reported. This is a case of a benign osteoblastoma arising from the perpendicular plate of the ethmoid bone with extension to the nasal cavity. The diagnosis and management of this unusual lesion, as well as the histopathology and the imaging characteristics are reviewed. We also review the previously reported cases of benign osteoblastomas of different origin, with nasal cavity involvement.
