Objectives: The present research was designed to assess of the maxillary sinus volume in patients of temporomandibular joint bony ankylosis. Patients and methods: Twelve patients (21 ankylotic joints) were selected suffering from TMJ bony ankylosis. Twenty one subject of control group (42 sinuses) had CT of maxillary sinus volume. Maxillary sinus volumes have been measured by CT and compared with that of ankylosis group. Results: Obvious reduction in the maxillary sinus volume has been detected preoperatively in TMJ ankylosis group and this reduction was statistical highly significant. This attributed to the reduction in size of the maxilla and the alveolar bone height secondary to TMJ bony ankylosis. Conclusion: obvious reduction in maxillary sinus volume in patients with TMJ bony ankylosis and this reduction increase with longer duration.
