Mastoid tenderness

Adnan Darr, Zahir Mughal, Thomas Martin
Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare histiocytic disorder of unpredictable clinical course and varied modes of presentation. The spectrum of presentation is wide, ranging from isolated eosinophilic granulomas to multiple lesions and diffuse systemic involvement. We present the case of a 52-year-old man, who presented with an 8-week history of worsening otalgia and superficial temporal tenderness attributed to otitis externa within the community and subsequently giant cell arteritis. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging were undertaken due to atypical features, which demonstrated bony destruction within the right greater wing of the sphenoid, squamous part of temporal and mastoid bone, with middle cranial fossa communication...

SESSION TYPE: Infectious Disease Student/Resident Case Report Posters IIIPRESENTED ON: Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PMINTRODUCTION: Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) infection with miliary spread, MTB otitis media and otomastoiditis are rarely reported together. This case's rapid progression from seemingly indolent ear infection to overwhelming sepsis in an immunocompetent patient highlights the invasive nature of this well-known infectious agent.CASE PRESENTATION: A previously healthy 19-year-old man presented to our hospital with two weeks of left ear discharge and pain, and three days of progressive shortness of breath and dry cough...

The anatomical relationships of the middle ear, the mastoid air cells, the temporal bone and intracranial structures can lead to invasive infections. Acute mastoiditis is the most common intratemporal complication of acute otitis media. Timely management includes antimicrobial therapy, imaging including ultrasound and/or computed tomography, surgical consultation and intervention. There are insufficient data to provide an evidence-based diagnostic tool for acute mastoiditis. Clinical, laboratory and microbiological differences between children with simple and complicated mastoiditis will be explored after case presentation of a 5-year-old boy with fever and a tender, soft-tissue swelling over the left zygomatic arch...

OBJECTIVE: To observe the effects of acupotomy on cervicogenic headache and explore the function of cutaneous nerve entrapment in the mechanism of cervicogenic headache. METHODS: From October 2008 to June 2009, 82 patients with cervicogenic headache were treated with acupotomy. There were 23 males and 59 females, ranging in age from 17 to 73 years (averaged 41.57 years). The course of disease ranged from 0.5 to 50 years,with an average of 10.4 years. The location of treatment was occipitalia, both of left and right side: altogether were 8 points, including tenderness point of postmastoid; the mid-point between mastoid and C2 spinous process; the internal 1/3 attachment between occipital protuberance and mastoid process; the posterior midline of C2 spinous process open to 1...

BACKGROUND: To describe the clinical features of intratemporal complications of acute otitis media (AOM) in children, a retrospective study was carried out for two years. METHODS: We considered acute mastoiditis, presence of postauricular swelling, erythema and tenderness and anteroinferior displacement of the auricle; labyrinthitis, presence of vestibular symptoms (spontaneous nystagmus and ataxia with or without vomiting; and facial nerve palsy, absence or decreased motility in hemiface...

INTRODUCTION: Mastoid osteoma is a rare benign tumour. In this article, the authors report two new cases of mastoid osteoma and discuss the modalities of diagnosis and management. CASE REPORTS: Both patients presented with a retroauricular mass that had been slowly increasing in size over several years. The patients consulted for the cosmetic deformity induced by the lesion or moderate tenderness. The diagnosis was based on the clinical presentation and non-contrast CT...

INTRODUCTION: The indigenous populations of the Arctic are prone to middle ear infections starting with an early age first episode, followed by frequent episodes of acute otitis media (AOM) during childhood. A high proportion develop chronic otitis media. Acute mastoiditis is a serious complication of AOM in childhood with postauricular swelling, erythema, and tenderness, protrusion of the auricle, high fever and general malaise. The disease may protrude intracranially. The incidence rates for acute mastoiditis in the Western world range from 1...

The purposes of this study were to review the clinical characteristics and treatment outcomes of patients with lateral sinus thrombosis (LST) and to discuss the need of internal jugular vein (IJV) ligation or anticoagulants. We retrospectively reviewed the charts of five patients (1 male and 4 female) with LST. The chief complaints were otalgia, fever, mastoid tenderness, and neck pain. All patients were confirmatively diagnosed with MRI-Venography or Angio-CT scans. The patients were treated with appropriate antibiotics and operations including mastoidectomies with/without thrombectomy according to their suspected disease course...

A seventeen-year-old girl presented with acute otitis media, unilateral miosis and ptosis (partial Horner's syndrome) and tenderness of the ipsilateral jugular vein. A culture of the otorrhoea showed Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes. A CT scan revealed an infiltrate near the ipsilateral carotid artery and jugular vein. The patient was hospitalised and treated with antibiotics. Clinical signs disappeared within 6 days. This report discusses the first case with a partial Horner's syndrome as an unusual complication of acute otitis media (AOM)...
