Abstract

We report on the case of a 51-year-old male with a brain abscess secondary to chronic sinusitis. In this patient, intracranial extension developed via the direct route through the bone defect in the posterior wall of the left frontal sinus. We successfully performed synergic operations of endoscopic sinus surgery and neurosurgical operation for the abscesses in the left frontal lobe and frontal sinus. At present, about 10 months after the treatment, the patient has no recurrence of the brain abscess. Onset of headache and fever associated with central nervous symptoms may indicate intracranial complication of sinusitis, and early image diagnosis and treatment are very important.<br>
