Abstract

Nasal septal abscesses are rare complications of nasal septal hematomas that occur secondary to trauma.1 Nasal septal abscesses can cause severe nasal deformities, particularly in young children,2–4 and also have the potential to cause life-threatening intracranial infections as a result of direct spread of bacteria into the cavernous sinus by way of the emissary veins that drain the nasal septum.6
