Osteomas are benign, slow-growing tumors found commonly in craniomaxillofacial region. Clinically, they may remain asymptomatic because of their small size or may become symptomatic because of enlargement, erosion, or compression of structures in the vicinity. Treatment is needed in frontal sinus osteomas causing symptoms or having immediate potential to cause complications. The treatment approach can be closed or open depending on the size, location, and frontal recess area occupied by the tumor. We present two cases of frontal sinus osteoma with varied presentations at the two ends of clinical spectrum and discuss the management protocols.
