Tympanic Membrane Promontory

Figure 6.23 Audiogram of the same case showing conductive hearing loss. Figure 6.23 Audiogram of the same case showing conductive hearing loss. Figure 6.24 Left ear. Meso- and epitympanic retraction pockets that adhere to the head of the malleus, the partially eroded long process of the incus, and the incudostapedial joint. A ventilation tube has been inserted in the anterior quadrant to avoid further retraction that might lead to cholesteatoma. Figure 6.26 Right ear. Large mesotympanic...

Hyperemic Tympanic Membrane

Figure 3.55 Nasopharyngeal carcinoma extending into the middle ear and external auditory canal. A polypoid mass infiltrates the tympanic membrane and partially fills the external auditory canal see CT scan, Fig. 3.56 and MRI, Fig. 3.57 . The patient was considered inoperable and was referred to radiotherapy. Figure 3.56 The CT scan demonstrates marked infiltration of the nasopharynx, the pterygoid muscles, and the petrous apex. Figure 3.56 The CT scan demonstrates marked infiltration of the...

Epitympanic Erosion

Epitympanic erosion with cholesteato-ma. The tympanic membrane is completely tympanosclerotic. The patient did not complain of otorrhea dry cholesteatoma . Figure 8.7 Right ear. Epitympanic erosion with cholesteato-ma. The tympanic membrane is completely tympanosclerotic. The patient did not complain of otorrhea dry cholesteatoma . Figure 8.8 Right ear. Epitympanic erosion with cholesteato-matous squamae. The patient did not complain of otorrhea. The pars tensa is intact....

Tympanic Membrane Perforation

Retracted Normal Tympanic Membrane

Large tympanic membrane perforation. The anterior drum residue shows tympanosclerosis. The ossicular chain is difficult to identify because of the presence of epidermization at this level. The round window is visible. A staged tympanoplasty is also indicated in this case. Figure 7.28 Right ear. Granulomatous otitis media. A roundish mass fills the middle ear. Serous otorrhea is present. Figure 7.27 Right ear. Large tympanic membrane perforation. The anterior drum residue...

Otoscopy Facial Nerve

Tympanic Membrane Thinning

The good fortune of otology resides in the fact that in most cases a diagnosis can be established through careful otoscopic examination the tympanic membrane is the window to the middle ear. Otoscopy constitutes the first phase in the examination of the patient. The initiation of the young otologist begins with this basic step. Colleagues of my generation will recall the long months of training which were necessary to understand and identify something in the depths of a narrow, tortuous, and...
