6 Possible Causes for Poorly Pneumatized Mastoids

  • TDO Syndrome

    pneumatized mastoids * Obliterated frontal sinuses * Undertubulated clavicles Causes - Tricho-dento-osseous syndrome Not supplied.[checkorphan.org] Poorly pneumatized mastoids (associated with eustachian tube dysfunction) Diagnosing TDO Syndrome A physician can diagnose TDO syndrome on the basis of physical features.[nfed.org] […] age * Round face * Brittle nails * Superficial nail peeling * Dense long bones * Thin nails * Premature nails * Thickened top portion of skull * Thin nails * Small head * Poorly[checkorphan.org]

  • Patulous Eustachian Tube

    The masking effect of nasally presented noise was greater with less developed mastoid pneumatization.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Otitis Media

    CONCLUSION: Transcanal approach is effective in a poorly pneumatized mastoid or severe adhesive otitis media.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media

    PNEUMATIZATION - Cavity size on CT: big or small, well or poorly aerated, sclerotic or not - children with chronic OME have more sclerotic mastoids with decreased pneumatization[ent.com.au] […] infection -noninfectious sequelae: chronic perforation, ossicular erosion, middle ear atelectasis, labyrinthine erosion, and tympanosclerosis, cholesteatoma, SNHL EFFECTS ON MASTOID[ent.com.au]

  • Goldenhar Syndrome

    In these patients, the mandibular ramus and condyles are hypoplastic; the maxilla, malar, and temporal bones are smaller on one side; and the mastoid is poorly pneumatized[symptoma.com]

  • Tympanoplasty

    A poorly pneumatized or fluid-filled mastoid bone predisposes a patient to require a more extensive tympanomastoidectomy to improve the chances of successful graft placement[emedicine.medscape.com] Mastoid The middle ear communicates with the mastoid air cells via the mastoid antrum. The temporal bone air cells are usually pneumatized by 3 years of age.[emedicine.medscape.com]
