Sato and associates reports a case of peri-tonsillar sbcess which they believe that it had originated from chronic infection of the ear. In a woman aged 23 history reveals the pre-sence of ear discharge since early childhood of the patient. During the procedure of ear clea-ning which was usual for the patient for a long period of time a piece of paper was inadverta-ntly pushed far into the external canal. Since this incident the chronic condition in that ear changed into an acute exacerbation that requi-red radical mastoidectomy. Both, the ear and the throat made uneventful recovery after ado-ption of surgical means of treatment.
