The close relationship between maxillary posterior teeth dental roots and pneumatic cavities poses difficulties in the clinical diagnosis of pathologies in this area. This ar- ticle reports a differential diagnosis of non-odontogenic sinusitis in the region of molars with an intimate rela- tionship with the maxillary sinus mucosa. Diagnosis wasvachieved by means of cone-beam computed tomogra- phy. The correct use of radiological evaluation associat- ed with clinical findings is crucial for the diagnosis of si- nusitis and can avoid unnecessary treatment procedures.
