PMID:  1513068     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of a 27-year-old white male with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) who had a maxillary sinus tumor with secondary orbital involvement was reported. Marked proptosis and distortion of the globe were present. Biopsy by the Caldwell-Luc approach disclosed an immunoblastic lymphoma of B-cell origin. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a maxillary sinus lymphoma extending into the orbit in a patient with AIDS.
