Intraosseous lipomas are very rare slow-growing benign tumors that may appear as congenital lesions or may be acquired (metaplasia from a pre-existing lipoma). Only a handful of head and neck cases have been reported in the literature. We present the first reported case of a solitary osteolipoma involving the sinonasal tract in a 66-year-old man with sinonasal symptoms. CT showed a lesion involving the left frontal sinus, extending into the ethmoid sinus with insinuation along the left middle turbinate. It appeared to be an atypical mass with areas of high attenuation (calcification) within.
