Abstract

Bockground/purpose: Exostoses are outgrowths of normal compact and cancellous bone and may occur in different locations of the jaw. Exostoses are a rare anatomic variation in the maxillary sinuses. The purpose of this study was to investigate retrospectively the prevalence of location, size, shape, and symmetry of exostoses in the maxillary sinus, and to assess the relationship between demographic variables (i.e., age and sex) via cone-beam computed tomography images.
