Sinonasal polyposis complicated with extradural abscess and lateral rectus palsy.

Sinogenic intracranial and orbital complications are infrequent complications of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyposis (CRSwNP), leading to potentially fatal intracranial and orbital sequelae. The mortality and morbidity associated with these complications remain high despite the widespread use of antibiotics. We report a patient with CRSwNP presenting with acute onset extradural empyema and sixth nerve palsy in whom the diagnosis was delayed, necessitating early surgical intervention. Our case shows that delay in management and underdiagnosis of sinusitis with nasal polyposis can lead to devastating complications. A high index of suspicion, early recognition of the clinical findings and radiological evaluation with contrast-enhanced CT of paranasal sinuses, orbit and brain are essential to rule out fatal complications associated with CRSwNP. Timely endoscopic intervention and the use of antibiotics can lead to good outcomes, even in complicated cases.
