See the list below:

  • Levenson et al, Corey et al, Benecke, and Davis et al have proposed staging systems for malignant external otitis (MEO). [17, 18, 19]

    • These staging systems are generally based on extent of soft tissue/bony involvement or development of neurologic complications.

    • None of these staging systems has been widely adopted.
