Abstract

Temporal lobe abscess is a rare, life threatening complication of inflammation of the middle ear. Signs of intracranial tension or focal neurological deficits at the time of presentation in patients with chronic or acute otitis media should raise concerns for temporal lobe abscess. Immediate surgical intervention along with antibiotics is necessary for good outcome.
