1999) Impact of resistant pneumococcus on rates of acute mastoiditis
Radiographic findings of mastoiditis
range from subtle changes of mastoid air cell opacification to the more profound changes of osseous destruction, subperiosteal abscess formation, coalescent mastoiditis
, and, in some cases, venous infarctions as well as parenchymal abscesses (1-3).
Usual predisposing factors for intracranial abscess include congenital heart disease, intrathoracic infection and chronic otitis or mastoiditis
Risk factors for cervicofacial actinomycosis include poor dental hygiene, dental procedures, chronic tonsillitis, otitis, mastoiditis
, maxillofacial trauma, and immunocompromise.
tuberculosis was cultured from 1 HIV-negative child, who also had coalescent mastoiditis
and a subperiosteal abscess but did not have facial nerve palsy.
My mother was one of the early recipients of 'sulpha-drugs' when she nearly died from mastoiditis
as a child, although surgery was the mainstay of her treatment.
Antibiotic prescribing in general practice and hospital admissions for peritonsillar abscess, mastoiditis
, and rheumatic fever in children: time trend analysis.
Treatment failure in AOM can lead to recurrent and persistent OM, hearing loss, persistent middle ear effusion necessitating ventilation tube insertion, mastoiditis
, bacteremia, sepsis, and various intracranial complications, such as meningitis and brain abscess.
pneumoniae infection almost always requires antibiotic therapy and often leads to complications such as mastoiditis
As such, primary care physicians and even otolaryngologists may find these clinical features more suggestive of bacterial otitis media and mastoiditis
, when in fact these findings can represent a fungal infection of the EAC.
Complications evaluated were pneumonia, quinsy and mastoiditis
All 10 immunocompetent patients had chronic respiratory tract disease; cystic fibrosis (n = 5), bronchiectasis (n = 4) and chronic mastoiditis
(n = 1).
