Mucoid otitis media

Description : The otoscopic appearance of mucoid otitis media is quite variable and depends upon the degree of inflammation present and the amount of exudate remaining in the middle ear.

At first glance, this left tympanic membrane appears to be normal; however, on careful inspection it is apparent that the middle ear is filled with a Grey fluid.

Note how opalescence of the fluid prevents the examiner from seeing 'into" the middle ear
