In brief: Otitis externa

Pseudomonas is a common cause of swimmer's ear or otitis externa and is usally treated topically, however, in diabetics and some immunocompromised people, the organism invades into the temporal bone of the skull and then is treated with systemic antimicrobials such as ceftazidime.
