Abstract

The complications of attico-antral type of Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media (CSOM) are severe due to underlying bone erosion. We describe a case of a 40-year-old lady with attico-antral CSOM and mastoiditis with a postauricular fistula, who underwent modified radical mastoidectomy with excision of the postauricular cutaneous mastoid fistula. Interestingly, another fistula over the dome of lateral semicircular canal was noted intraoperatively.Few reports of occurrence of postauricular mastoid fistula with a labyrinthine fistula have been documented.
