Abstract


Complications in tympanomastoid surgery are rare in experienced surgeon’s hand. Still many complications have been reported in the literature. Injury to facial nerve, sigmoid sinus, jugular bulb, mastoid emissary vein, dura and ossicular chain are common complications of mastoidectomy. There are some rare complications like pneumocephalus, pneumomediastinum, and Papilloedema and brain abscess following mastoid surgery. Post mastoidectomy tetanus is also a rare complication reported in the literature. Neurofibroma after tympanomastoid surgery is a very rare complication we are presenting here. A 20 Year male patient came with history of painful swelling behind the left ear since four months which started two months after cortical mastoidectomy and tympanoplasty in same ear done in our hospital.
