Osteomas are slow growing benign tumours of osseous origin that can occur either superficially or intraosseously in any bone of the craniofacial complex. A case of an osteoma arising from the frontal bone of the skull and extending within the frontal sinus, is described here. The osteoma was treated using a surgical mode of management, after which the patientâ€™s symptoms were relieved and there has been no recurrence of the lesion. This paper also discusses the various clinico-imaging features of the osteoma with a brief note on the surgical techniques.
