Cavernous sinus thrombosis is a fatal disease and require aggressive treatment. This progresses rapidly and sometimes there is intracranial extension. Here, we report a case of pansinusitis and cavernous sinus thrombosis that eventually developed middle cerebral artery territory infarct. Patient was middle aged diabetic and was having a history of tooth extraction 10 days back. We suggest that unusual complication of ischemic stroke with cavernous sinus thrombosis should be kept in mind, while dealing with these patients.
