Bezold's abscess is a neck abscess, arising as a complication of acute mastoiditis or active chronic otitis media and cholesteatoma. This condition is rarely reported in the recent literature. A very rare case is presented of spontaneous drainage of Bezold's neck abscess into the middle ear. Pertinent review of the literature is illustrated.
