Acute Petrous Apicitis - A Case Report

Dr. Anisha A S | Dr. Sherin Sha S | Dr. Jayaprabha S [2]

Abstract: Petrous apicitis is a rare and potentially life-threatening condition and the incidence is reported to be approximately 2 per 100,000 children with acute otitis media (AOM)1. They can produce a triad of retro-orbital pain, sixth cranial nerve paralysis, and otorrhea (Gradenigo's Syndrome) but only a minority of patients with petrous apicitis exhibit the full triad in the post-antibiotic era2. Here we report a case of complete triad of Gradenigo Syndrome following AOM treated with minimal surgical intervention.

Keywords: Petrous apicitis, AOM, Gradenigo Syndrome, conservative management
