A 30-year-old woman had an orbital hematoma with frontal sinusitis. This complication of infection in the paranasal sinuses has not been previously described, but is explainable in anatomic terms. On computed tomographic scanning, the degree of enhancement with contrast infusion was striking and may aid in future diagnosis of this condition.
