Abstract

In infants, malignant otitis externa presents extremely rarely with only nine cases reported till date in the world medical literature. This clinical record documents the first case of the malignant otitis externa in an immunocompetent 3 month old female infant, who was treated successfully with intravenous antibiotics and local debridement. In addition this case report also reviews the scant medical literature on the cited disease.
