    Infection can also spread upwards to cause problems such as meningitis or brain abscess. These are very rare. What investigations might be considered?[netdoctor.co.uk] In rare cases, untreated sinusitis can lead to meningitis , a brain abscess , or an infection of the bone.

  • Generalized Clonic or Tonic-Clonic Seizures

    Brain imaging: A brain CT or MRI does not show seizures, but it can identify abnormalities that can cause tonic clonic seizures, such as a brain tumor, a stroke, an abscess[verywellhealth.com] , or an abnormal blood vessel in the brain.[verywellhealth.com]
