Priyank D Talati, Suman P Rao, Padma Ramesh, Kalpana R Kumar


A 30-year-old female patient presented with fever, altered sensorium, vomiting, and right-sided ear discharge. She was diagnosed as right-sided squamosal chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) with cerebellar abscess for which she underwent modified radical mastoidectomy with transmastoid cerebellar abscess drainage. After surgery, the patient made an uneventful recovery. Brain abscess due to suppurative otitis media is a potentially fatal complication and needs to be treated aggressively.
