We present a patient that had a frontal sinus mucocele, which was the result of a traffic accident that occurred 3 years earlier. During surgery via the osteoplastic approach we observed glass particles in the left frontal sinus. As patients with foreign bodies in the paranasal sinus are not commonly seen in otolaryngological practice, especially glass particles in the frontal sinus, and papers dealing with this issue are rare in the English language literature, we present our case and a review of the literature.
