Ear leprosy

The manifestation of leprosy of the outer ear is observed with lesions of the skin of the face. In the skin of the auricle (lobe and curl), nodes are formed where pain and tactile sensitivity are reduced. Sometimes there is a degeneration of the nervous apparatus of the inner ear with manifestations of sensorineural hearing loss.



Patients with infectious granulomas are urgently sent to the hospital, are examined under Art. 3, 4,6 of the order of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation N 315 1995

Ear leprosy

  1. EAR INJURY, FOREIGN BODY OF THE EAR
    In case of an external ear injury, first aid is similar to first aid for injuries. Damage to the eardrum can occur during explosions, diving, during diving operations. The rupture of the membrane is accompanied by pain, hearing loss, minor bleeding from the ear. First aid: - insert a sterile cotton swab into the external auditory canal; - put on the ear
  2. CHRONIC INFLAMMATION. GRANULEMATOSIS. REASONS, MECHANISMS OF DEVELOPMENT. MORPHOGENESIS OF GRANULES. GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS. MORPHOLOGY OF SPECIFIC (TUBERCULOSIS, SYPHILIS, LESCASE, SCLEROMA) AND NON-SPECIFIC GRANULEMATOSIS. SCLEROSIS
    The tissue response to damage is divided into three phases. The initial vascular and exudative manifestations of acute inflammation are replaced by a phase of elimination of the damaging agent, accompanied by an increase in the activity of macrophages. The third and final phase is healing, during which the processes of repair and regeneration of damaged tissue develop. Obviously, complete healing is only possible
  3. 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
  4. Syphilis ear
    Manifestations of secondary syphilis (roseola, papule) on the skin of the outer ear are noted simultaneously with a similar lesion of other areas of the skin. Of greatest importance in syphilis of the ear is the process localized in the inner ear. Distinguish between congenital and acquired forms of the disease. With a congenital form, damage to the inner ear is detected at the age of 10-20 years and it manifests itself in a triad
  5. 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, which threaten fatal
  6. Malignant tumors of the ear
    Malignant tumors of the ear can be both primary, i.e. developed directly in a particular department of the ear, and arising from the germination of tumors from neighboring organs and tissues. In the outer and middle ear, cancer is more often diagnosed in adults, and sarcoma in children. Of the other species, there may be melanoma. The course of tumors of the outer ear is relatively slow, they look like
  7. Syphilis ear
    Congenital syphilis is characterized by damage to the inner ear and appears at the age of 8 to 20 years. Bilateral pronounced sensorineural hearing loss develops (the Getchinson triad - deformation of the incisors, parenchymal keratitis and cochlear neuritis) with a decrease, less often loss of vestibular function. Often there is a positive symptom of Anber - pressor nystagmus with a whole drum
  8. Benign ear tumors
    Ear tumors are rare diseases. There are benign and malignant neoplasms. Benign ear tumors include papillomas, fibromas, angiomas, chondromas, osteomas, etc. Of the tumor-like formations, various cysts (atheromas, dermoids, etc.) should be noted. Benign tumors are localized mainly in the outer ear.
  9. Ear tuberculosis
    Tuberculosis of the outer ear is a secondary manifestation of tuberculosis - it develops on the auricle as a result of the transition of the process from the face. A nodule appears in the region of the lobe, sometimes with ulceration of the skin; in some cases, tuberculous perichondritis occurs; with lupus, multiple nodules (lupomas), merging into infiltrate. Tuberculosis of the middle ear occurs hematogenously and less often in the tubular way.
  10. Ear injuries
    The clinical picture Damage to various parts of the ear occurs when a number of factors act: mechanical, chemical, thermal and radiation. Damage to the auricle. The main symptom is the appearance of a fluctuating swelling of a bluish color in the auricle. Small otogematomas resolve independently. Emergency care Emergency care: extensive otogematomas should
  11. 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
  12. Ear injuries
    Ear damage occurs when a variety of factors act in peacetime (domestic, industrial, sports, sports injuries, etc.), and it is especially common during a war. Injury may damage various parts of the ear. However, combined injuries are more often observed when organs adjacent to the ear are damaged. Among the damaging factors, the most common are
