Recurrent Bacterial Meningitis in a Child with Hearing Impairment, Mondini Dysplasia: A Case Report
Recurrent bacterial meningitis is not a common disease and makes physicians seek underlying predisposing factors which can result from anatomic anomalies or immunodeficiency. In this paper we present a boy with recurrent bacterial meningitis with the history of trauma and sensorineural hearing loss. Mondini dysplasia was demonstrated with computed homographic scans (CT-Scan) of temporal bones.
