-Dangerous area of the face.

Dangerous area of the face

- It is the area () the root of  the nose and 2 angles of the mouth.
- The veins in this region are connected to cavernous sinus so any infection in this area may lead to cavernous sinus thrombosis.

- Venous draingae of Dangerous area:-

  • Antearior and  post etmoidal veins drain to opthalmic vein.
  • sphenopalatine & greater palatine veins drain to pterygoid veins.
  • Angular vein,lateral nasal and superior labial veins drain to facial vein...
- All of the above veins drain finally to cavernous sinus.

So, Donnot put your finger in your nose..:)

See you,
Dr Ibrahim...
