An ectopically erupted tooth in the maxillary sinus presents itself as a confounding problem, which may lead tomaxillary sinusitis. A case of a cyst associated with an ectopic supernumerary tooth in the left maxillary sinus cavity is presented, which is of interest as it has been very rarely documented. Investigations like computed tomography and orthopantamograph were carried out to confirm the extent of the lesion, and the management of the cyst was done by a high vestibular approach. The tooth was removed, cyst was enucleated, wound was closed, Specimen was sent for histopathological examination, and biopsy report confirmed the same. A detailed discussion has been done in relation to the case presented.
