Abstract
© 2016, Logos Medical Publishing. All rights reserved.Pott’s puffy tumor is a complication that can be seen after frontal sinusitis and considered as a surgical emergency. Although it is rare, given the potential for significant morbidity, a high index of suspicion for Pott’s puffy tumor is required in patients presenting with fluctuant, tender, erythematous swelling of the scalp. High clinical suspicion for the diagnosis of the disease and confirmation of the diagnosis with imaging studies are necessary. In treatment it is important to combine the medical and surgical treatment modalities to avoid intracranial complications. In this case report, a male patient with a Potts puffy tumour developed after frontal sinusitis was presented.
