The inflammatory lesions that affect the paranasal sinuses receive the generic denomination sinusitis; the maxillary sinus is the most commonly affected. This inflammation can have various origins, including the tooth. We describe a case of maxillary sinusitis in a 56-year-old patient who experienced pain on the left-side maxilla, referred to a tooth and performed a partial review of the literature.

KEY WORDS: sinusitis, maxillary sinus, dental origin, i-CAT.
