Albrecht von Haller (1708-1777) discovered the infraorbital ethmoid cells, also known as Haller's cells, in 1743. The aim of this historical study is to trace both the different terminology used to name them from the time they were first described anatomically, and the progressive understanding of the role they play in the development of acute rhinosinusitis, and finally to suggest a clear modern definition of Haller's cells based on this history.
