Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report the occurrence of a Pasteurella multocida temporal lobe abscess in an elderly woman who had a history of neglected chronic purulent otitis and in whom an extensive ipsilateral glomus tumour invading the petrous bone was found. We believe this is the first report in the literature of an otogenic cerebral abscess associated with a glomus jugulare tumour and the fifth report of a Pasteurella multocida brain abscess. The synergistic pathogenesis of the otitis and the glomus tumour in the evolution of the abscess is hypothesized.
