Pediatric intracranial complications of sinusitis

Diagnostic dilemma and management

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Objective: To discuss the diagnostic dilemma and management of pediatric intracranial complications of sinusitis Design: Case report. Conclusion: The advancement of the diagnosis and treatment of sinusitis in this era has not significantly abolished the possibility of intracranial infections especially in pediatric population. As many children have no history or clinical signs of sinusitis, diagnosis and source of infection in patients with Suppurative Intracranial Complications of Sinusitis (SCIS) are difficult to make. High index of suspicion and imaging have been helpful in making a correct diagnosis. Medical therapy and surgical interventions are equally beneficial in treating SICS1).
