She notes the first medical report dated May 21, signed by Ibrahim Sanoe, put the cause of death as left Otorrhagia, meaning bleeding from the left ear, brain damage, (fall on the cranium) and sexual assault.
Craig stated that the patient Odell was brought to the hospital unconscious with bloody discharge from her ear and, hour later the late Odell was admitted, the patient sadly lost her life and the probable cause of her death was, intracranial hemorrhage two degree trauma, ear infection two degree left Otorrhagia aspiration, meaning damage of the brain and heavy flow of blood from the left ear.
Instead of auris, the word ous ([phrase omitted]) is used in the construction of the names otitis, otorrhea, otorrhagia
, or otalgia.

Spontaneous otorrhagia as a consequence of laparoscopic pelvic surgery has not been previously described in the otolaryngology literature.
A 73-year-old female with a history of carcinoid tumor underwent bilateral salpingo-oopherectomy for an ovarian mass and was found to have otorrhagia in the postoperative period.
Immediately, postoperatively, she was noted to have left-sided spontaneous otorrhagia. She was evaluated by the otolaryngology service and found to have a sloughed squamous layer of the inferior portion of the left external auditory canal (Figure 1).
The occurrence of otitis externa was found highest (78.37%) followed by otorrhagia (13.51%) and others (8%).
The occurrence of acute otitis externa was found highest (29.72) followed by maggot wound with acute otitis externa (16.21), chronic otitis externa (13.51), otorrhagia (13.51%), suppurative otitis externa (10.81), otorrhagia with suppurative otitis externa (8.10%) and others (8%).
When signs and symptoms do manifest, they may include headaches, epistaxis, a vascular retrotympanic mass with hemotympanum and/or otorrhagia, pulsatile tinnitus, hearing loss, vertigo, and Horner syndrome or Raeder paratrigeminal neuralgia.
(1,2) Depending on the size and location of the aneurysm, the direction of its growth, and the specific adjacent structures involved, possible signs and symptoms include headaches, epistaxis, avascular retrotympanic mass with hemotympanum and/or otorrhagia, pulsatile tinnitus, hearing loss, vertigo, and Horner syndrome or Raeder paratrigeminal neuralgia.
