Abstract

Cavernous sinus thrombosis (CST) is a rare disease with the potential for significant morbidity and even death. Rapid diagnosis and aggressive medical and surgical management are imperative for patients with CST. The cause may be aseptic or infectious. When the cause is infectious in nature, it is most commonly from a bacterial origin. However, we present the case of a 57-year-old man with a fungally related CST that ultimately led to his death.
