ABSTRACT
Lymphangiomas are benign hamartomas of the lymphatic vessels. They arecongenital malformations that are usually present at birth or diagnosed as early as twoyears of age. Though 75% of lymphangiomas occur in head and neck region, itsoccurrence in the maxillary antrum is a very rare entity. Very few cases have beenreported in the literature so far. We report a case of lymphangioma of the maxillarysinus in a 29 year old male patient which was discovered as an accidental finding duringopen reduction of a maxillary complex fracture. Complete surgical excision was donewith no reports of recurrence.
