  • Barotitis

    The most common cause of barotitis is pressure changes during descent in aviation. Equilibration is normally achieved by swallowing, jaw movements, yawning, or chewing, but some have to perform a Valsalva maneuver several times during descent and even by these means some fail. The aim of the study was to estimate[…][]

  • Epidural Hematoma

    ., local hematoma , swelling, laceration) Battle's sign Otorrhagia Hearing loss , vertigo Symptoms may appear directly after trauma or after a lucid interval![]

  • Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation

    Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) describes a pathologic activation of coagulation mechanisms, leading to thrombi in various organs with contribution to multiple organ failure. In clinical practice, diagnosis of DIC can often be made by laboratory values, including prolonged coagulation times, thrombocytopenia,[…][]

  • Temporal Bone Fracture

    The clinical signs were: otorrhagia 78% (n 22), otalgia 11% (n 3), otorrhea 7% (n 2), facial paralysis 7% (n 2), hearing loss 7% (n 2) Table 3.[] Periauricular swelling and retroauricular ecchymosis ( Battle sign ) are common, and almost all have otorrhagia .[] ) Possible (not associated with otorrhagia) Nystagmus Common (usually spontaneous, usually less intense [first or second degree] or positional; nystagmus absence also possible[]

  • Tympanic Membrane Perforation

    Tympanic membrane perforation is a common otological disorder with associated hearing impairment. This study aimed at determining the clinicoepidemiological pattern, etiological factors, clinical presentation, and management of tympanic membrane perforation in a tertiary hospital in Nigeria. This was a prospective,[…][]

  • Syringocystadenoma papilliferum

    Otological symptoms depend on the extent of obstruction of the EAC: conductive hearing loss, otic fullness, otalgia, otorrhagia or otorrhoea, as in our case 2 and the case[]
