Abstract

Primary tuberculosis of the middle ear is often a diagnostic dilemma due to its rarity and variable clinical presentations. A chronic presentation is chronic otorrhoea with multiple perforations of the tympanic membrane. We report the case of a 41-year-old migrant worker who presented with a post auricular abscess without other otological symptoms. Radiological and histopathological findings revealed a cholesteatoma and tuberculosis.
