Middle ear chronic inflammation


Causes
Acute purulent otitis media of the middle ear, 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 solution, antiseptic and astringents to affect the mucous membrane of the ear. Means should be introduced into the ear cavity in the form of drops, emulsions and in powder form, then be sure to consult a doctor.

Middle ear chronic inflammation

  1. Middle ear inflammation acute
    Cause Penetration of various microorganisms into the middle ear: staphylococci, streptococci, viruses and fungi. Most often, microorganisms penetrate the middle ear through the auditory tube, which can be facilitated by inflammatory processes in the nasal passage, paranasal sinuses, and nasopharynx. Infection in the middle ear can get through the external auditory canal when the tympanic membrane ruptures. At
  2. INFLAMMATION OF THE MIDDLE AND INNER EAR, Eustachitis
    Middle ear inflammation (otitis media) is rare in cats. Usually it develops as a complication of inflammation of the outer ear, as well as as a result of perforation of the eardrum, or traumatic damage to the temporal region. The cause of inflammation is most often an infection caused by hemolytic streptococci or staphylococci, usually penetrating the middle ear through the Eustachian
  3. Acute inflammation of the middle ear (otitis media)
    The clinical picture Acute inflammation of the middle ear is more often observed in children (especially infants and young children). Pathogenic microorganisms enter the tympanum with acute rhinitis, adenoid growths, with influenza, measles, scarlet fever. Sharp or gradually increasing pain, congestion of the ear, noise in the ear, often turning into a sensation of pulsation, hearing loss, increase
  4. Productive and chronic inflammation. Granulomatosis. The morphology of specific and non-specific inflammation.
    1. Chronic inflammation is manifested by a simultaneous combination of 1. failed repair 2. angiogenesis, scarring 3. reactive changes 4. tissue damage 5. embolism 2. Causes of chronic inflammation 1. acute infection 2. persistent infection 3. prolonged exposure to toxic substances 3. Chronic inflammation characterized by 1. deposition of amyloid 2. mononuclear infiltration
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. Middle Ear Tuberculosis
    Tuberculosis of the middle ear is rare, occurs when the infection spreads through the hematogenous route from some distant primary focus, most often from the lungs. This position, in particular, is confirmed by the occurrence, most often in early childhood, of a lesion of the mastoid process without previous inflammation in the tympanic cavity. An important role in the emergence and development
  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. COMPLICATIONS OF PURULENT DISEASES OF THE MIDDLE AND INNER EAR
    Nosological forms of purulent inflammation of the middle ear are acute purulent otitis media, mastoiditis, chronic purulent epithympanitis, mesotympanitis and purulent labyrinthitis. With their unfavorable course, limited purulent processes can develop in neighboring anatomical areas (abscesses), diffuse inflammation of the meninges (meningitis) and brain matter (encephalitis), as well as
  11. 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
  12. The course of inflammation. Acute and chronic inflammation
    The course of inflammation is determined by the reactivity of the body, the type, strength, and duration of the phlogogen. There are acute, subacute and chronic inflammation. Acute inflammation is characterized by: - ​​intense course and relatively short (usually 1-2, maximum up to 4-6 weeks) duration (depending on the damaged organ or tissue, the degree and scale of their alteration,
  13. Chronic inflammation of the tonsils (chronic tonsillitis)
    In children, this disease is common. Prerequisites for the development of chronic tonsillitis are anatomical, physiological and histological features, the presence of microflora in the gaps, and the violation of protective and adaptive mechanisms in the almond tissue. Most often, chronic tonsillitis begins after a sore throat. The inflammatory process in the tissues of the tonsils at the same time becomes chronic
  14. Chronic inflammation of the tonsils - chronic tonsillitis
    Chronic tonsillitis (tonsillitis chronica) is a common infectious disease with the localization of a chronic focus of infection in the tonsils with periodic exacerbations in the form of tonsillitis. It is characterized by a violation of the general reactivity of the body, due to the ingestion of toxic infectious agents from the tonsils. Exacerbations of chronic tonsillitis (sore throat) when contagious
  15. Clinical anatomy of the middle ear: tympanic wall
    The middle ear consists of a series of interconnected air cavities: the tympanic cavity (cavum tympani), the auditory tube (tuba auditiva), the entrance to the cave (aditus ad antram), the cave (antrum) and the associated mastoid cells (cellulae mastoidea) . Through the auditory tube, the middle ear communicates with the nasopharynx. Under normal conditions, this is the only message of all
