Abstract

A nine-year-old child was brought to the emergency room by her mother because of an upper respiratory infection symptoms and forehead swelling. The patient was seen by the emergency department physician and diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection; the forehead swelling was felt to be related to forceful coughing. The patient and patient’s mother returned on a second visit because the forehead swelling had not improved. A CT scan of the head was subsequently done which demonstrated pansinusitis.
