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.
