The disease pattern <Pott's puffy tumour> describes a local frontal-bone osteomyelitis that arises from an external infection with consecutive sub-periostal expansion. Symptoms may develop slowly or not at all with a mostly indolent protuberance on the patient's forehead. Symptomatic illness often indicates secondary morbidities. Here, we present a complicated case with intracranial dissemination.
