  • Abstract

    Nasal vestibulitis (nasal furunculosis) is a localized infection of the hair follicle. The most common pathogens include Staphylococcus aureus, other Gram-positive organisms, and anaerobes. Infection in this area can spread locally even intracranially causing fulminant life-threatening conditions like septic cavernous sinus thrombosis. Here, I report a case of a 55-year-old female presented with a history of high-grade fever and right side nasal furuncle for 4 days, together with a rare association of bilateral periorbital (preseptal) swelling for 1 day. The female was hospitalized. Laboratory and radiological investigations were carried out to investigate any possible complication.
