Sample text

It is not always seen through the TM. There are two tiny muscles in the middle ear, the stapedius and the tensor tympani. The stapedius, innervated by a branch from the facial (VII) nerve, contracts reflexively to loud sounds, protecting the ear from noise damage by bracing the stapes to immobilize it. 4, inserts into the manubrium of the malleus. It is innervated by the trigeminal (V) nerve and its function is probably similar to the stapedius for sound protection. It also contracts with certain pharyngeal muscles, suggesting a role in bracing the ossicles when swallowing.

These infections occur more often than most clinicians expect, and they are often treated inappropriately with antibiotic drops. The most notable finding on ear examination is the presence of “matter”—thick moist debris—in the canal (Fig. 7). Fig. 7 Fungal otitis externa. (Source: Hughes GB, Pensak ML. Clinical Otology.

Touching the tragus or pulling the auricle backward elicits severe pain. Swelling narrows the lumen of the canal, sometimes to a pinpoint. In addition, the infection may spread through the fissures in the anterior cartilage to the parotid gland and adjacent skin, causing parotid cellulitis and localized adenopathy. Treatment of this condition has traditionally centered on topical therapy with eardrops, namely, combinations of neomycin, polymyxin, and hydrocortisone (Cortisporin, or its generic substitute).
