We present a case of open fracture of maxillary sinus following fall against a nutcracker. The only pathological findings were a small wound and subcutaneous emphysema in the front of and behind the right maxillary sinus. There was no flattening of the anterior wall of the maxillary sinus, consequently no surgical intervention was performed. The patient was treated with prophylactic antibiotics and sutures. No sequelae were observed.
