Abstract

Pott’s puffy tumor is rarely seen in the modern era of antibiotics. It is usually seen as intracranial complication following inappropriately treated frontal sinusitis. Up until 2001 there have been only 21 pediatric cases reported in the literature and most have been secondary to frontal sinusitis. Only 1 case has been reported following a latent mastoiditis and that has been in an adult [1]. We report a case in a child who developed Pott’s puffy tumor following mastoiditis.
