Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 1989;115(7):876-877. doi:10.1001/archotol.1989.01860310114035

• Tuberculosis of the middle ear is currently a rare disease. As most physicians are unfamiliar with the typical presenting features, the diagnosis is made too late, with resulting complications, such as irreversible hearing loss and facial nerve paralysis. A case report and review of the literature are presented, emphasizing that tuberculosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of chronic ear infection.
