Abstract. Since the introduction of antibiotics, the simultaneous occurrence of multiple intra- and extracranial complications in chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) has been uncommon. Such a combination is associated with high mortality and morbidity, especially in the pediatric age group. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) otorrhea presenting in CSOM is unusual and rare. To the best of our knowledge, only 19 cases of CSF otorrhea in complicated CSOM have been previously reported in the literature.
