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. A case of advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the maxillary antrum mimicking invasive fungal sinusitis is discussed. The patient had radiological investigation with computed tomography (CT) scan displayed in axial, coronal, and three-dimensional (3D) sagittal reconstruction views. A wedge biopsy of the mass was sent for histopathology and fungal studies for definitive diagnosis.
