It occurs with high impact maxillo facial trauma, maybe associated with ocular discomfort. A three dimensional computed tomography scan may be useful in diagnosing the case and treatment planning. While treating the frontal sinus fracture, patency of the fronto nasal duct is important to avoid formation of mucocele as a late complication.
