Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

Organized hematoma of the maxillary sinus is rare. It occurs by organization of the hematoma in an unaerated maxillary sinus. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the CT features of this lesion.

CONCLUSIONS:

Organized hematoma should be included in the differential diagnosis when patients have recurrent epistaxis and an expansile mass in the maxillary sinus.
