Hemiparesis caused by otogenic brain abscess in children is an unusual complication of Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media. Complications can occur when the disease is not treated properly so that the infection in the middle ear spreads intracranially.

In the antibiotic era, right hemiparesis caused by otogenic brain abscess in children is uncommon. It is life-threatening if not treated properly.

Doctors report a case of Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media with cholesteatoma in a 14-year-old boy with complications of right hemiparesis caused by an otogenic brain abscess. His management included open craniotomy, drainage of the abscess, radical mastoidectomy, and intravenous antibiotics according to the result of the culture and sensitivity.

In conclusion, hemiparesis caused by an otogenic brain abscess is unusual. Rapid and precise diagnosis and treatment can minimize patient mortality and morbidity.
