A case of intracerebral tension pneumatocele as a complication of an Osteoma in the Fronto-ethmoid sinus is reported. The commonest causes of intracranial air are head trauma and neurosurgical procedures. Less common etiologies include infection due to gas-forming organisms, mucoceles, tumors(e.g. osteomas carcinomas pituitary adenomas peripheral nerue tumors) and congenital neurenteric cysts or dural defects. Computed tomography permitted rapid diagnosis including localization of the air thus facilitating prompt treatment.
