Abstract: Septic Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis (CST) is a rare infective condition affecting the cavernous sinus in the brain associated with high morbidity and mortality, especially when appropriate and prompt intervention is delayed. Although there is limited data on CST globally, the low prevalence in developing countries may not be unconnected with factors such as poor health seeking behaviour of the people, inadequate healthcare facilities and the dearth of radio-imaging diagnostic techniques, as well as low level suspicion for CST amongst physicians
