Chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) with cholesteatoma can present with intratemporal complications such as postauricular subperiosteal abscess with or without fistula. In some postauricular cutaneous mastoid fistula cases, direct closure of the wound is not possible due to skin tension, leading to skin necrosis and postoperative recurrent cutaneous fistula. Here, we describe a surgical technique using a combination of a bilobed flap and a fibro-muscular-periosteal flap for fistula closure on a 31-year-old and a 35-year-old female with postauricular cutaneous mastoid fistula due to CSOM. All patients were successfully managed with no fistula recurrence.
