 Actinomycosis is caused by Actinomyces islaell,and is rarely found in the paranasal sinus. We report a case of actinomycosis in the maxillary sinus. He complained of pain in the left cheek and temporal area,following chemotherapy of renal carcinoma. A fungus-like lesion was found in left maxillary sinus. Computed tomography showed a calcified lesion in left maxillary sinus. We performed endoscopic sinus surgery. Histopathological examination revealed actinomyces. There have been no remarkable recurrence after the operation. We considered that surgical excision is very effective for actimomycosis of maxillary sinus.
