FELIX, Felippe et al. Conservative treatment of Gradenigo's syndrome. Rev. Bras. Otorrinolaringol. [online]. 2003, vol.69, n.2, pp.256-259. ISSN 0034-7299.

Gradenigo's syndrome, a rare complication of otitis media, consists of suppurative otitis, abducens nerve palsy and pain in the trigeminal nerve area. The occurrence of this disease is associated with osteitis of petrous apex of temporal bone and the neighbor structures. The authors describe in this article the case of a 7 year-old boy with this syndrome treated successfully with conservative treatment instead of surgical treatment.

Keywords : Gradenigo's syndrome; petrositis; abducens palsy.
