Abstract: Although it is generally accepted thai aculc niasruicJilis is an uncommon disease, there is evidence thai it may be on ihe increase, although serious complications are still relatively frequent. The aim of the present study was to evaluate Ihe causes and the clinical course of 24 cases of acute mastoiditis treated over a 10-year period. Eighteen eases were the sequel of aculc otitis media, while six cases developed as a complication of cholesteatoma. There were nine cases with intralcmporal complications: eight subperiosteal abscesses and one facial nerve paralysis. Two more patients had intracranial complications: a cerebellar abscess and meningitis. Ten patients recovered with conservative therapy consisting of intravenous antimicrobial therapy, combined with myringotomy in some cases. Fourteen patients were (rested surgically by-cortical (n=8) or modified radical mastoidectomy (n=6). All patients recovered following treatment. The paper discusses the_ different approaches used in the management of (his disorder.
