Abstract

Chronic otitis media (COM) is a common clinical entity, but the incidence of COM complications has declined recently due to broad use of antibiotics. Independent of this, these complications are still a significant challenge in otorhinolaryngology practice because of high morbidity and mortality rates. The most common etiologic diagnosis was cholesteatomatous COM. Simultaneous coexistence of complications of COM in the same case is a rare situation, and the present report describes a case with mastoiditis, Bezold abscess, lateral sinus thrombophlebitis, meningitis, and paraspinal abscess.
