The most common intracranial complication of sinusitis is orbital cellulitis. Another extracranial complication of sinusitis is frontal supperiostal abscess from frontal sinusitis. Intracranial complication such as epidural abscess, subdural empyema, meningitis, cerebral abscess, and dural-vein thrombophlebitis may result from sinusitis, particulary from frontal or sphenoid infections. Here we report a patient who was with complications from frontal and ethmoid sinuzitis which was with periorbital sellulitis, subdural amphyem and frontal
sinus perforation.
