Abstract

Nasal septal hematoma (NSH) is relatively uncommon otorhinolaryngology emergency. Children is more prevalence due to the softer cartilage and loosely adherent of its mucoperichondrium. Nasal or facial trauma is the most common etiology while NSH following common cold is extremely rarely reported. Urgent management is needed to prevent serious complications like saddle nose deformity, nasal tip depression, abscess formation and subsequently intracranial sequalae like cavernous sinus thrombosis. We present a case of 11-year-boy presented with NSH following an episode of common cold.
