A 17-year-old male presented with a 3-month history of cough associated with right-sided purulent rhinorrhoea and right facial pain. Nasal endoscopy confirmed the presence of mucopus from the right middle meatus. Plain sinus X-ray assessment showed the presence of an ectopic molar in the right anterosuperior aspect of the maxillary sinus entrapped in soft tissue. Surgical removal of the tooth and the diseased antral tissue was undertaken via a Caldwell-Luc procedure with resolution of symptoms.
