    Abstract

    We describe four cases of lateral sinus thrombosis secondary to otitis media. They presented with low-grade fever, headache, nausea, vomiting and ear discharge. One patient had facial nerve palsy. CT scan was helpful in managing these patients. They were treated with antibiotics followed by surgery. Two patients had intracranial abscesses and were treated accordingly.
