a nasal septal abscess (na) is defined as a collection of pus between the cartilage or bony septum and its normally applied mucoperichondrium or mucoperiostium. it is an uncommon disease wich should be suspected in a patient with acute onset of nasal obstruction and recent history of nasal trauma, periodontal infection or an inflammatory process of the rhinosinusal region. we report a case of an 8-year-old boy with bilateral na caused by community-acquired methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus(mr-co) in order to emphasize the importance of prompt diagnosis and adequate treatment to prevent the potentially dangerous spread of infection and the development of severe functional and cosmetic sequelae.
