Steroids in cavernous sinus thrombosis

CST most commonly results from contiguous spread of infection from a nasal furuncle (50%), sphenoidal or ethmoidal sinuses (30%) and dental infections (10%). [3] Less common primary sites of infection include tonsils, soft palate, middle ear, or orbit ( orbital cellulitis ). The highly anastomotic venous system of the paranasal sinuses allows retrograde spread of infection to the cavernous sinus via the superior and inferior ophthalmic veins. It was previously thought that veins in the area were valveless and that this was the major cause of the retrograde spread, however, a recent study has found that the ophthalmic and facial veins are not valveless.
