Synopsis: 
Acute sinusitis has been associated with complications and has been seen most frequently in the adolescent male population. The most common complication is orbital. Surgical techniques have evolved from open sinus approaches to endoscopic approaches. Surgical treatment is indicated for those patients who fail medical management and should consist of an endoscopic approach which may be combined with open approaches if indicated.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Complicated sinusitis is rare. It might not be identified early and might expose the patient to an unfavourable outcome. There is a paucity of data regarding this condition in the Caribbean. This study was undertaken to describe the clinical characteristics and treatment outcomes of patients admitted with this condition.
