Abstract: Maxillary sinusitis and oro-antral fistulae are associated with a BRONJ manifestation in the upper jaw in approximately 44%. The involvement of the maxillary sinus should be given special attention and three-dimensional imaging modalities might be necessary, not only to evaluate the extent of necrosis, but also to exclude involvement of the maxillary sinus.
