This patient underwent a right upper tooth extraction in 1960 with fracture of the root and a subsequent defect in the floor of the right maxillary antrum repaired in 2001. In 1970 he developed nasal polyps and later an episode of asthma. Polyps were removed in 1987 and 1997. He is not aspirin allergic.In July 1999 he developed pansinusitis with a full right maxillary sinus.
