|Abstract:||Orbitofrontal cholesterol granuloma is a rare entity that has a predilection for men in their fourth or fifth decade and occurs almost exclusively within the frontal bone overlying the lacrimal fossa. Surgery by drainage and curettage is virtually curative in all cases and recurrence is very rare. We describe the case of a 77-year-old man with recurrent orbitofrontal cholesterol granuloma 11 years after surgery, presumably due to subtotal curettage. The potential use of an endoscope to aid complete removal of lesion is discussed.|
