What is the role of hyperbaric oxygen treatment in Malignant Otitis Externa?

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment is often used in the center with easy access to hyperbaric chambers. Several authors claim benefits but a satisfactory prospective study has yet to be reported. Hyperbaric oxygen treatment involve placing the patient in a compression chamber increasing the environment pressure within the chamber and administrating 100% oxygen for respiration. It may be helpful for patient with complications, experiencing a poor response to therapy or with recurrent cases. The real value of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) for Malignant Otitis Externa remains unclear.
