 A 64-year-old woman complained of a swelling of the left buccal and cervical lymph node swelling. CT revealed the mass that destroyed the walls of left maxillary sinus except for the orbital floor. The mass was diagnosed as not malignanct on biopsy from the lesion that protruded into the oral cavity. However, as the possibility of malignancy was assumed, we removed the mass with Weber-Fergusson approach and the ligation of external carotid artery. The intraoperative frozen section showed no tumorous lesion, and the extended resection was not performed. The definitive diagnosis was a hematocele of the maxillary sinus, and there have been no signs of recurrence.
