Abstract

Pott's puffy tumor (PPT), or osteomyelitis of the frontal bone, is a rare entity especially in adults. PPT is believed to occur as a complication of fronto-ethmoidal sinusitis or trauma to the frontal bone. We present the computed tomo - graphy and magnetic resonance imaging findings in such a rare case of Pott's puffy tumor.
