14 Possible Causes for Loss of Light Reflex of the Tympanic Membrane, Rhinitis, Sinusitis

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    It is unknown whether this is true for children with other atopic conditions such as atopic dermatitis or allergic rhinitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] data suggest that previous history of acute sinusitis influences the composition of the NP microbiota, characterized by a depletion in relative abundance of specific taxa[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Otologic examination reveals a bulging, erythematous tympanic membrane with loss of light reflex and landmarks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Viral Upper Respiratory Tract Infection

    RESULTS: Patients with sinusitis were likely to be older, female, smokers, have a history of allergic rhinitis, and have longer symptom durations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] OBJECTIVE: Differentiating acute bacterial sinusitis from viral upper respiratory tract infection (URI) is challenging; 20% to 40% of children diagnosed with acute sinusitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Loss of light reflex 80% of cases resolve spontaneously. Antibioitcs reduce the duration of pain, but do not reduce the risk of perforation. Amoxicillin is recommended.[almostadoctor.co.uk]

  • Chronic Serous Otitis Media

    In the majority of cases, the cause is related to dysfunction of the eustachian tube due to viral or bacterial rhinitis and occasionally to nasopharyngeal tumors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acute otitis media (AOM) is often the main precipitating event in young children, whereas an infection of paranasal sinuses seems to be the main risk factor for the development[symptoma.com] Signs on examination: 1) Tympanic membrane is often dull with loss of light reflex 2) Tympanic membrane may appear bulging with air bubbles 3) Mobility of tympanic membrane[specialist-ent.com]
