Gradenigo's syndrome: CT and MRI findings

Pediatr Radiol. 1996 Sep;26(9):684-5. doi: 10.1007/BF01356837.

Abstract

We report the case of an 8-year-old girl with Gradenigo's syndrome. Involvement of the petrous portion of the left temporal bone was demonstrated by CT and an inflammatory lesion of the left petrous apex was clearly shown by MRI, which is useful in diagnosis and management of apical petrositis.
