• Osteoblastoma is a rare tumor that occurs most frequently in the spine and long bones. We report the fourth known case involving the ethmoid sinuses. The unusual radiographic, computerized tomographic appearance, and clinical behavior are described. A pathological description of the surgical specimen and the differential diagnosis are reviewed. Surgery is the treatment of choice.
