What can happen if sinus infections are left untreated?

If not adequately recognized and treated, some types of sinusitis can be especially serious. For example, due to its close proximity to the brain, infection in the sphenoid sinus may easily lead to a serious central nervous system infection, injuring important nerves to the eyes and face (see Figure 2).
