Acute sinusitis is a common medical problem which can result in serious complications if it is not managed appropriately. The most common complication of acute sinusitis is orbital complication, followed by intracranial complications. Concomitant involvement of the orbit and the brain as complications of acute sinusitis is very rare. We were presented with a case of a 27-year-old woman who suffered from subperiosteal abscess in the orbit and subdural abscess in the frontal area. Endoscopic sinus surgery, drainage of the subperiosteal abscess through eyebrow incision and drainage of the subdural abscess through craniotomy were performed. The postoperative course was uneventful, and the patient was free of ocular and neurologic symptoms at the eight month follow-up.
