Osteomyelitis of the temporal bone is a rare clinical condition. It is common in operations involving the base of the skull, in tuberculosis and in immunocompromised patients. The report shows a unique case whereby a fully immunocompetent patient presents with periauricular exudation of an unclear aetiology. The case raised questions whether the patient, who was originally from the Arabian Peninsula, had acquired a tropical infection or some novel disease, or possibly immunosuppression. After a lengthy series of investigations a diagnosis of osteomyelitis of the temporal bone was diagnosed.
