Introduction To Middle Ear And Tympanic Membrane Disease

Middle ear disorders may be a result of infection, a transfer of the Eustachian tube (the Eustachian tube) or trauma. Diagnosis may provide clues that items were inserted into the ear, and help symptoms such as rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, sore throat, upper respiratory infections, allergies, headaches, systemic symptoms and fever. Often, the appearance of the external auditory canal and tympanic membrane leads to the diagnosis (eardrum (tympanic membrane) in the right ear (A); tympanic cavity (Cavitas tympani) after removal of the tympanic membrane (B).). The nose and throat (nasopharynx and oropharynx) should be examined for signs of infection or allergy and tumors.

Pneumatic otoscopy, tuning fork tests such as the weaving and Rinne test, tympanometry and audiological methods allow an assessment of middle ear function.
