Radiographic Impression
The right maxillary sinus is completely occupied by a homogenous area of increased density, and the walls appear to be sclerotic. Both findings are suggestive of a long-standing chronic sinusitis.

The extraction site of the maxillary right second premolar extends to include the apex of the first premolar. Clinical evaluation of the first premolar is suggested to rule out periapical inflammatory disease. There is also the appearance of a potential perforation of the cortical boundary separating the alveolar process from the maxillary sinus. This is consistent with an oral antral communication. Clinical evaluation of the site is suggested.

The following are selected images from the volume illustrating major findings
