Cemento-ossi­fying ­fibroma is a ­benign ­tumour ­which is usu­ally ­seen in the man­dible and max­illa and ­rarely in the eth­moidal ­sinus. ­This ­tumour com­monly ­occurs in chil­dren and ado­les­cents, as in the ­case ­here ­described. ­Although ­these ­tumours are gen­er­ally ­small, asymp­to­matic and non-aggres­sive, ­their
beha­viour in the eth­moidal ­sinus is atyp­ical. A ­rare ­case of ­large fron­toeth­moidal muco­cele asso­ciated ­with ­cemento-ossi­fying ­fibroma of the ante­rior eth­moids, ­observed in a ­young ­female, ­aged 21 ­years, and sur­gi­cally ­treated, is ­reported. The sur­gical ­approach and the ­good ­results ­obtained are pre­sented.
