With widespread use of antibiotics, the occurrence of brain abscess and lateral sinus thrombosis together is rare these days, especially with enterococcus as the causative organism. We here present a case of pediatric case of brain abscess and lateral sinus thrombosis which developed an additional complication of postoperative cerebrospinal fluid leakage. The case was successfully treated by excision of the abscess, canal wall down mastoidectomy with partial obliteration of cavity, and Type III tympanoplasty with umbrella graft.
