Mastoid surgery is an aerosol-generating procedure and is considered as high-risk procedure during this pandemic of coronavirus disease. It should, however, be performed in certain life-threatening conditions. Otorhinolaryngologists should be well versed with the measures to protect ourselves from acquiring the coronavirus. We, therefore, report a case of mastoidectomy performed during this pandemic for an intracranial complication of chronic otitis media, focusing on the mitigation measures.
