We report a case of cavernous hemangioma originating in the maxillary sinus. This is an unusual location for hemangioma, and this case also had a rare presentation involving bone erosion. The substantial bone destruction and resultant widening of the right ostiomeatal complex made it difficult to differentiate this cavernous hemangioma from malignant epithelial tumors.
