  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 5-year-old girl was admitted to our hospital on June, 1972, because of meningitis and CSF otorrhea. She had not suffered from head trauma or otological infective disease. Right temporal craniotomy was carried out on October, 1972, but no pathological findings on the anterior surface of the petrous bone was detected, so, the right middle ear bottom was packed with fascia graft by otologist, which stopped the CSF otorrhea for seven months. But the otorrhea recurred on June, 1973, when she caught cold. She was readmitted to our hospital because of recurrent meningitis.
