Otitic hydrocephalus is a rare intracranial complication of middle ear infection. It presents with features of raised intracranial pressure without any neurological deficits. Its exact pathogenesis is still not known but most associate it with lateral sinus thrombosis. Magnetic resonance imaging and Magnetic resonance venography are useful in diagnosis. We present a case of otitic hydrocephalus and discuss its clinical findings, pathogenesis, diagnostic tools, and treatment modalities.
