Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a relatively frequent problem in neurologic or neurosurgical practice. Treatments for CSDH are well established and provide positive postoperative outcome; however, some atypical postoperative complications can occur.
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 also reviewed the literature and found four other cases of radiation-induced olfactory neuroblastoma reported since 2000, suggesting prior radiotherapy as one risk factor for this disease.
