MIDDLE EAR DISEASES

Middle ear diseases represent the most clinically and socially important group. They often get sick adults and especially children. The result of these diseases is hearing loss, leading to a decrease in social activity, professional suitability and degree of fitness for military service. Finally, middle ear diseases can cause intracranial complications that are fatal.

The condition for the normal functioning of the ear is its good ventilation through the auditory tube, which, in turn, depends on the state of the upper respiratory tract.


Distinguish between acute and chronic otitis media, and by the nature of the exudate - serous and purulent. Middle ear diseases are rarely primary. Usually they develop against the background of inflammatory processes of the upper respiratory tract, especially in the presence of factors contributing to impaired ventilation of the ear: adenoids, nasal polyps, curvature of the nasal septum, hypertrophy of the nasal concha, sinusitis and other diseases.

  7. Middle ear chronic inflammation
    Causes Acute purulent otitis media of the middle ear, suffered from acute respiratory viral infections, scarlet fever, tonsillitis, measles, diseases of the upper respiratory tract, middle ear injury. Symptoms Frequent profuse suppuration from the ear with an unpleasant odor, hearing loss, periodic exacerbations of inflammation in the middle ear. Often, cholesteatom masses are released from the ear. Possible increase in temperature. First Aid Alcohol
  8. Middle ear tumors
    Benign tumors of the middle ear. Benign tumors include fibroma and angioma (with relatively slow growth, recurrent bleeding), endothelioma, osteoma (mastoid process), osteoblastoma of the mastoid process and pyramid. True cholesteatoma is rare in the region of the temporal bone, in the mastoid process, sometimes with spread to the tympanic
  9. Middle ear disease
    Middle ear diseases are considered very common in all age groups, especially in childhood. With an unfavorable course, these diseases often lead to a persistent decrease in hearing, sometimes reaching a sharp degree. Due to the anatomical and physiological connection of the middle ear with the inner one and its topographic proximity to the meninges, inflammatory processes in the middle ear can cause severe
  10. Middle ear anatomy
    The middle ear (auris media) consists of several communicating airways: the tympanic cavity (cavum tympani), the auditory tube (tuba auditiva), the cave entrance (aditus ad antrum), the cave (antrum) and the associated mastoid airways (cellulae mastoidea). Through the auditory tube, the middle ear communicates with the nasopharynx; under normal conditions it
  11. Inflammatory diseases of the middle ear
    Pathological processes that occur in various parts of the middle ear are very diverse. The polymorphism of pathogenesis depends on the characteristics of the anatomy and physiology of this organ, pathological agent, immunological condition, etc. Depending on the duration of the disease, acute and chronic processes are distinguished, in relation to the stages of inflammation - catarrhal, serous and purulent forms
