We report the case of a professional scuba diver who was unable to dive because he began experiencing severe frontal pain on descent. Following endoscopic surgery to open the frontal recess, the man was able to resume diving unrestricted by pain. We discuss the causes and treatment of this complaint, and we suggest that this might be considered a new indication for surgery in a limited number of cases.
