Introduction: This is the first reported mastoid lith in medical history in a case of chronic suppurative otitis media.
Objective: Here we will discuss a case of mastoid lith in a patient who had undergone mastoid exploration for chronic suppurative otitis media with facial paralysis.
Method : case report.
Conclusion: Long standing infections in salivary gland ducts, kidney, ureters ,gall bladder, urinary bladder, tonsils (tonsilloliths) nose (rhinolith) etc may cause formation of stones and concretions when there is long standing stasis of chronic infected material. The formation of stone along the facial ridge of mastoid bone with bone erosion has caused gradually increasing facial paralysis.
