A Severe Intracranial and Extracranial Complications of The Middle Ear Cholesteatoma (A Report Case)
Otological intracranial and extracranial complications are still a major problem and a life-threatening complication of otitis media mainly cholesteatoma. We present a case of a 40-year-old man, who presented mastoiditis with large subperiosteal abscess, repeated headache and acutely altered mental status, caused by subdural abscess. CT scan was done first to confirm the diagnosis, secondly to monitor the evolution.
Large osteomas of the fronto-ethmoidal cavities are very rare benign tumors. Headache and ocular signs are the most common symptoms. Imaging allows the diagnosis. Treatment of ethmoid sinus osteoma is surgical. One case with orbital extension is reported and discussed. A 30 years-old male; complaining of swelling of themedial angle of the right eye. Computed tomography showed a right ethmoidal process with orbital extension. The tumor was removed through an external ethmoidectomy.
