Acute sphenoid sinusitis is a relatively uncommon disease in the post-antibiotic era. Furthermore direct bony destruction and intracranial complications secondary to sphenoid sinusitis are extremely rare. However, it can have a high morbidity and mortality rate. If the diagnosis is delayed, serious problems can occur, so early diagnosis and treatment are required. We represent and discuss a case of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhea with wide bony destruction directly, secondary to acute sphenoid sinusitis.
Key Words: Acute sphenoid sinusitis;Cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea
