Tuberculous otitis media can be difficult to diagnose because it can easily be confused with other acute or chronic middle ear conditions. Compounding this problem is the fact that physicians are generally unfamiliar with the typical features of tuberculous otitis media. Finally, the final diagnosis can be difficult because it requires special culture and pathologic studies. To increase awareness of this condition, we describe two cases of tuberculous otitis media and we review the literature.
