Cavernous sinus thrombosis is a rare but well-documented complication of sinus disease, propagated by intracranial spread of infection via valveless veins of the midface, with facial cellulitis as an uncommon source of infection. We present a case of significant intracranial thromboses secondary to nasal dorsal abscess after trauma that was successfully treated with bedside drainage of the abscess in addition to broad-spectrum antibiotics, anticoagulation, and steroids, and remains asymptomatic with seven months follow-up.
