Mastoiditis complications

Complications could include:

  • Communication disorders can affect how a person receives, sends, processes, and understands concepts.
  • After years of trying and failing to find a distinct relationship between type 2 diabetes and hearing loss, recent studies have confirmed that relationship. In 2008, the National Institute of Health (NIH) found that hearing loss is twice as common...
  • Rinne and Weber tests are exams that test for hearing loss. They determine whether a patient has conductive or sensorineural hearing loss.
  • Hearing impairment is when a person is unable to partially or completely hear sound in one or both ears. Hearing impairment is a common part of aging.
  • A lumbar puncture is a medical procedure usually performed to obtain a sample of cerebrospinal fluid. The procedure is sometimes referred to as a spinal tap.
  • Meningitis is an inflammation of the membrane that covers the brain and spinal cord. It may cause headache and fever in teens and adults, irritability in babies, and trouble breathing in young children.
  • One life-threatening complication of infection is sepsis, which often occurs in people who are elderly or have weak immune systems. Patches of discolored skin is a symptom of severe sepsis.
  • Facial paralysis is loss of facial movement because of nerve damage. It often presents as droopiness or weakness on one side of the face and is typically caused by infection, trauma, tumors, or stroke.
  • Bell's palsy is a condition that affects movement of the muscles in the face as a result of damage to the seventh cranial nerve controlling them. Significant damage of this nerve can result in paralysis of the face.
