Maxillary Reconstruction and Placement of Dental Implants After Treatment of a Maxillary Sinus Fungus Ball

Giacomo Colletti, MD/Giovanni Felisati, MD/Federico Biglioli, MD/Roberto Tintinelli, DDS/Davide Valassina, MD

PMID: 20862421

A fungus ball is one of the fungal diseases that can affect the paranasal sinuses. It requires surgical treatment. Because there is only one previously reported case of dental implant placement after treatment of a maxillary sinus fungus ball, the authors here report on a case of a maxillary sinus fungus ball with bone erosion that was treated surgically with a combined endoscopic endonasal and endoral (Caldwell-Luc) approach. One year later, a graft from the ilium was obtained and a sinus elevation was performed to allow the placement of dental implants. Three months later, the dental implants were placed, and they were all osseointegrated at the 9-month follow-up. Int J Oral Maxillofac Implants 2010;25:10411044
