Cholesteatomatous otitis is a chronic dangerous condition of the middle earbecause of its potential intra and extra cranial complications.These complications have become exceptional since the systematic use of Antibiotics and the early management of the cholestatomatous disease. However, they are still there, especially in the developing countries. We report an original observation of a 29-year-old female with a Bezold?s abscess, sigmoid sinus thrombosis and purulent meningitis following a neglected right ear othorrhea. Very few cases associating these 3 complications have been described in the literature. They may be life-threatening. Therefore, an otorrhea must not be neglected by the patient and its very important to diagnose and treat early all cases of chronic otitis media to prevent them.
