Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Intracranial complications of acute and chronic otitis media can be difficult to recognize, as signs and symptoms are often subtle and variable across different age groups. In March, 2012, a 10-year-old boy was hospitalized due to a 10-day history of horizontal double vision from the right eye, which worsened when looking towards the right side, initially neglected by his practitioner; in addition, a recurrent left-sided otitis media had been treated sequentially with cefpodoxime, amoxicillin, cefixime, and azithromycin in the foregoing month. On admission the boy was fully alert and had diplopia with complete right abducens palsy (AP). This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
