Are you saying the tooth is infected and has not been removed?

Is there a reason an infected tooth is allowed to remain? There could be a fistulus tract there.

I agree with Marsha, could be a fistula. Sometimes bad teeth can also lead to sinus infections. I think (but I am not sure) it might be because a fistula breaks through into the sinus cavity or the infected tooth root is so close to the sinus cavilty the infection spreads into it.
