Introduction: Due to the intimate relationship between the root apices of maxillary posterior teeth and the maxillary sinus, in some cases, maxillary sinusitis may be of odontogenic origin, such as tooth extractions, periodontal and periapical lesions (abscesses, granulomas and root cysts). Computerized tomography is the exam of choice to help with the diagnosis of sinusopathies.
Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the aspects that characterize an odontogenic sinusitis by means of a case report.
