Fibrous his­tio­cy­toma (FH) is a ­rare and com­plex ­tumor of the con­nec­tive ­tissue, ­recently ­detected in the ­head and ­neck ­region and orig­i­nating ­from ­either the ­skin, ­orbit or ­deeper tis­sues. In the ­nose and par­a­nasal ­sinuses ­only 12 ­cases ­have ­been ­reported in Eng­lish lit­er­a­ture, of ­which 4 ­belonged to the eth­moid ­sinus. The ­tumor can be cli­nic­o­his­to­log­i­cally clas­si­fied ­into ­benign, malig­nant and inter­me­diate ­type. We ­report prob­ably the ­first ­case of an inter­me­diate ­grade FH of the eth­moid ­sinus and its clin­ical pres­en­ta­tion and man­age­ment.
