In 1942 we1 reported the case of a white girl, aged nine years, who came to the hospital because of headache, fever, nausea, vomiting, deafness and a regressive personality change. She was found to have bilateral masked mastoiditis which, with an associated localized meningitis, was thought to explain the symptoms. The left mastoid was opened and found to be destroyed, with thick mucopurulent material inside. There was a dural exposure in the tegmen antri, with a dural granuloma.
