    Rarely it can spread directly via tympanic membrane perforation or via reflux through eustachian tube.[]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    If perforation of the tympanic membrane occurs, serosanguinous or purulent discharge may be present.[] Chronic otitis media frequently presents a permanent perforation of the tympanic membrane. A central perforation of the pars tensa is more benign.[] Vigorous nose blowing during a common cold, sudden changes of air pressure, and perforation of the tympanic membrane also favor the development of otitis media.[]

  • Acute Mastoiditis

    The main signs of progressive infection were tympanic membrane perforation, pulsatile suppurative secretion from the mucosa, and intratemporal abscess.[] Where tympanic membrane perforation is small, drainage is poor, or the tympanic membrane is not perforated, tympanostomy should be performed to facilitate drainage.[] When ear discharge was present, the middle ear fluid was directly collected from the tympanic membrane perforation after cleaning of the external ear canal with a dry cotton[]

  • Acute Otitis Media

    The principal aim of this review is to present the current knowledge regarding acute otitis media (AOM) with spontaneous tympanic membrane perforation (STMP) and to address[] To evaluate the aetiological role of the main bacterial pathogens associated with acute otitis media (AOM) in children with AOM and spontaneous tympanic membrane perforation[] In 177 children living in an area with high 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine 13 coverage, who had acute otitis media complicated with spontaneous tympanic membrane[]
