Foreign bodies in the paranasal sinuses are rare, but they may become more common with an increasing number of road traffic accidents. Foreign bodies in the paranasal sinuses cause vague symptoms. They are occasionally encountered either after occurrence of complications or after radiological workup for some other reasons. They may be missed if their presence is not suspected initially. Therefore, the presence of foreign bodies should be suspected even in seemingly trivial lacerations over the paranasal sinuses in cases of maxillofacial trauma. The suspicion of foreign bodies may prevent the development of intracranial and intrasinus complications. Although a wide variety of foreign bodies have been reported in the paranasal sinuses, glass were rare in the frontal sinus. We present a case of frontal mucocele with glass in the frontal sinus which occurred as a result of road traffic accident with a brief review of the literature.
