Pott’s puffy tumor was reported first in 1760 as a forehead swelling and frontal bone osteomyelitis in association with an epidural abscess,1 one of the most dangerous complications of frontal sinusitis.2 To our knowledge, however, only 2 cases of Pott’s puffy tumor have been reported in the English dermatologic literature.3,4 Herein, we report a case of Pott’s puffy tumor caused by chronic sinusitis that resulted in a sinocutaneous fistula.
