Background: Acute otitis media (AOM) is an acute inflammation in the middle ear caused by various factors such as blockage of Eustachian tube, infection and allergy. Purpose: The case report is to forewarn general practitioners and ENT specialists concerning AOM potentially causes intratemporal and intracranial complications. Case: We report an eleven-years-old girl with acute otitis media with intratemporal complications (labirynthitis and sensorineural hearingloss) and intracranial complication (meningitis). Case management: The recent management of acute otitis media with complications includes empiric antibiotics, analgesic, anti-inflammatory drugs and miringotomy with ventilation tube insertion. Conclusion: The accuracy of diagnosing AOM with complication depends on the clinical symptomps such as vertigo, fever, seizure, meningism and unconsciousness. The pneumatic otoscopy examination is the gold standard in diagnosing AOM. Our patient was given antibiotics for 14 days, anti- inflamation and myringotomy with ventilation tube insertion procedure.
