Inverted papilloma is a relatively uncommon neoplasia of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses. We report a case of a 52-year-old patient having sinonasal inverted papilloma masquerading as orbital cholesterol granuloma. The cholesterol granuloma was removed by combined superior orbitotomy approach and nasal endoscopic route under general anesthesia. The diagnosis was confirmed by histopathological examination. Postoperative nasal endoscopic examination and CT scan revealed no residual tumor, with no recurrence over twelve months.
