Choosing one of the Head and Neck regions provide an access to some of the cases I have dealt with in the past.
Cases are arranged according to traditional ENT regions.
Normal left tympanic membrane
Otoscopy of healthy left ear.
Chronic right otitis media with effusion
Otoscopy of the right ear - thick mucous in the tympanic cavity. Tympanic membrane is not movable on the Valsalva manoeuvre.
Conservative intensive treatment is recommended for 2-3 months. If it fails the middle ear ventilation tubes should be placed.
CT scan presents pharyngeal part of the Tuba Auditiva which opens into the nasopharynx (green arrows).
Post radical tympanoplasty condition of the right ear
CT axial scan presents "wide open" middle ear cavity after the radical tympanoplasty procedure (green arrows).
