Background: Pneumocephalus is a pathology characterized by air influx into the intracranial region. It may occur after head trauma and rarely after endoscopic sinus surgery. As the amount of air increases, this can cause neurological disorders with a mass effect and this condition is called tension pneumocephalus.
