157 Possible Causes for Poorly Aerated Mastoids, Protuberant Ears

  • Mastoiditis

    Chronic mastoiditis results in a sclerotic, poorly aerated mastoid cavity (Figure 155-7).[] Retro-Auricular Redness and the Protuberant Ear How should a pediatrician approach the patient with skin redness behind the ear and a protuberant pinna, as in Figures 1 and[] She had a protuberant left ear that was erythematous and tender posteriorly involving the mastoid prominence along the outline of the pinna.[]

  • Protuberant Ears

    Key Words: prominent ears, otoplast Otoplasty is the surgical correction of protuberant ears and ear deformities.[] The authors describe the history of otoplasty and discuss anatomy and development of the ear, indications for otoplasty of protuberant ears, anatomical causes of protuberant[] Surgery/Protuberant Ears 0 Ear Surgery/Protuberant Ears[]

  • Lipodystrophy

    Lipodystrophy syndromes are a group of genetic or acquired disorders in which the body is unable to produce and maintain healthy fat tissue. The medical condition is characterized by abnormal or degenerative conditions of the body's adipose tissue. ("Lipo" is Greek for "fat", and "dystrophy" is Greek for[…][]

  • Generalized Lipodystrophy

    We present an individual with a generalized and infantile onset lipodystrophy who later developed hypertriglyceridemia, pancreatitis, refractory diabetes, irregular menses and renal failure. She showed the hallmark features of a congenital, generalized lipodystrophy (CGL). Sequencing PPARG identified two pathogenic[…][]

  • Osteopathia Striata

    Radiographic findings may include marked cranial sclerosis, narrowed Eustachian canals, poorly aerated mastoids, small tympanic cavities, narrowed external or internal auditory[] Female patients can also manifest ocular hypertelorism, downslanting palpebral fissures, broad and depressed nasal bridge, narrow high arched palate and low set dysplastic ears[] Macrocephaly is documented in almost half of patients, followed by frontal and occipital bossing, prominent forehead, maxillary hypoplasia, mandible overgrowth with protuberance[]

  • Cockayne Syndrome

    Cockayne syndrome (CS) is a premature aging disorder characterized by developmental defects, multisystem progressive degeneration and sensitivity to ultraviolet light. CS is divided into two primary complementation groups, A and B, with the CSA and CSB proteins presumably functioning in DNA repair and transcription.[…][]

  • Acute Mastoiditis

    Chronic mastoiditis results in a sclerotic, poorly aerated mastoid cavity (Figure 155-7).[] During her second visit she has normal vitals, but has noted bilateral mastoid fluctuance and erythema, bilateral anterior ear protuberance, and purulent discharge in her[]

  • Patulous Eustachian Tube

    The present results indicate that the symptoms associated with patulous ET may be more distressful in patients with poorly developed mastoid cavity than in those with well-aerated[] The masking effect of nasally presented noise was greater with less developed mastoid pneumatization.[]
