Osteomas are benign bone tumors that can arise from any bone. They are the most common tumor of the paranasal sinuses, often small and asymptomatic. Secondary orbital extension of these tumors is considered an uncommon, while primary orbital osteomas are very rare, only appearing in literature as case reports. We report the case of an 18 years old man who presents with a fronto-ethmoidal osteoma with orbital extension, revealed by an orbital tumefaction, and who was treated with combined endoscopic and open surgery
