Frontal sinusitis can lead to severe and life-threatening disorders. Complications may involve intracranial structures, orbit and adjacent bone and soft tissue structures. Bone wax has been used since the turn of the century as a mechanical aid to hemostasis following surgical procedures. That it may produce a foreign body giant cell reaction in significant proportion of cases is well known. We experienced a woman who had recurrent frontal sinusitis due to bone wax. She was treated by endoscopic frontal sinusotomy with foreign body removal.
