Intraorbital and intracranial complications of acute rhinosinusitis (ARS) are uncommon, but potentially life threatening.
Signs of progression of ARS should be recognized early to allow timely surgical treatment in order to avoid irreversible lesions such as vision loss and neurological deficits.
In this case series, we provide an overview of 6 representative cases who presented at our tertiary center (2017-2018).
The aim of this case series is (1) to draw new attention to the clinical manifestations and management of these complications, since even in highly-developed medical settings we still observe permanent sequellae due to delayed or inadequate treatment, (2) to give an updated analysis of the guidelines, stressing the low threshold for endoscopic sinus surgery, even in children, (3) to underline the benefits of a multidisciplinary approach in these young patients.
