    Abstract

    Hypoplasia of maxillary sinus is a rather rare condition. Review of literature reveal that so far only 6 cases have been reported. Hypoplasia of frontal and sphenoid sinuses has been documented rather frequently. In this article the authors report two rare cases of hypoplasia involving all paranasal sinuses which has not been reported so far in literature. This is actually an incidental finding when routine CT scan of sinuses was performed. This patient was clinically asymptomatic. Awareness of this condition is important because of implications involved in performing FESS surgery in these patients. Routine x-rays will lead to erroneous diagnosis of sinus infection because of the opacity seen in the poorly developed sinus area.
