Abstract

The clinical case of a 10-year-old girl who had an extradural abscess, osteomyelitis of the frontal bone and a Pott's tumor as a complication of sinusitis is described.

She was successfully treated with intravenous antibiotics and combined surgical drainage: endonasal and external through bicoronal incision with craniectomy.

The need for multidisciplinary management of these serious infectious complications is emphasized.
