Abstract

The eruption of tooth other than the alveolar arch is called Ectopic Tooth. It is frequently encountered in the maxillary sinus. Facial pain is the most common presentation which is commonly misdiagnosed as chronic sinusitis. We present a case of a 47-year-old lady who was incidentally diagnosed to have an ectopic free lying canine in the maxillary sinus and discuss the various theories mentioned in literature predisposing to this condition.
