Abstract

This is the second case report of a temporal bone osteomyelitis caused by Blastomyces dermatitidis, which presented as a chronic serous otitis media. The presenting serous otitis media was refractory to conventional medical and surgical management and progressed to a temporal bone osteomyelitis prior to diagnosis. B. dermatitidis is a rare fungal pathogen that causes a systemic pyogranulomatous disease that primarily manifests itself in the skin, bones, pulmonary, and genitourinary systems. If left untreated it is associated with a high rate of mortality. The otologic presentation of this rare disease is emphasized, while the clinical and therapeutic features are reviewed.
