Abstract

Acute otitis media continues to be one of the most common infections today and a major cause of the prescription of antibiotics in the pediatric age group. Complications of this condition are rare, especially when antibiotic therapy is started early; however, complications related to acute otitis media cause dramatic morbidity. This report provides a review related to a case of acute otitis media with bilateral intracranial and intratemporal complications.
