Case Report Rhinosinusitis; A Potential hazard of Nasogastric tube insertion
The nasogastric tube has been used frequently for enteral feeding and as an
intranasal oxygen catheter. This practice is however associated with complications. We present a case of rhinosinusitis and sepsis in a diabetic
patient following the insertion of a nasogastric tube. Physicians should be aware of sinusitis as a possible cause of sepsis in patients with nasogastric tube insertion.
