Venous communications exist between the cavernous sinus and the face that may serve as routes for the spread of infection to the cavernous sinus. One of these involves spread from the facial vein --> angular vein --> superior ophthalmic vein --> cavernous sinus. Another one involves spread from the facial vein --> deep facial vein --> pterygoid venous plexus --> emissary veins (through foramen ovale and inferior ophthalmic vein) --> cavernous sinus.
