Otitis media, the infection of the middle ear, could be of acute and chronic type (CSOM) which could lead to extra and intra cranial complications. 71 cases of CSOM with the complications were studied. Intraoperative pus was collected in a sterile syringe and was stained with Gram stain and was cultured aerobically and anaerobically. Staphylococcus aureus was the most common pathogen isolated in both complications. Anaerobic culture did not grow any organism. Most of the aerobic organisms were sensitive to cefotaxime.
