Abstract

Here the authors describe the case of a 23-year-old young woman with life-threatening focal suppurative intracranial collection with brain compression secondary to long forgotten chronic suppurative otitis media. With the development and availability of broad-spectrum antibiotics and their timely usage, cases of suppurative otitis media are a rarity in the current times.
