Abstract

Most cases of osteomyelitis of the skull base occur as a result of inadequately treated localized malignant otitis externa. We present four patients with osteomyelitis of the skull base who did not present initially as malignant otitis externa. Increased morbidity may occur when these atypical cases are not promptly recognized and treated.
