Abstract

The incidence of otogenic intracranial complication has decreased markedly following the advent of modern chemotherapy. Less is it a disease of children in association with acute otitis media. More often it is seen in the adult after a long history of chronic ear disease, especially cholesteatoma. In the modern literature on lateral sinus thrombosis, meningitis and cerebral abscess are listed as the most common concomitant complications and cerebellar abscess is poorer prognosis than any other complications. Recently we experienced a case of cerebellar abscess after treatment of lateral sinus thrombophlebitis associated with cholesteatoma, and reported this case along with literature survey.
