SUMMARY: Basaloid squamous cell carcinoma is a rare but very aggressive type of carcinoma, whose most common site is the upper respiratory and digestive system. This study presents a case of basaloid squamous cell carcinoma in the maxillary sinus and orbit that was treated at our department. This is a rare case due to the patient’s young age, as well as the uncommon site of occurrence.
