Case description

Thickening of the tympanic membrane with or without calcification is called myringosclerosis.
Its most common aetiologies include infection, traumatic injury and grommet insertion.
Myringosclerosis forms during the process of healing with an increased fibroblastic reaction and variable calcium phosphate deposition. During the ear examination whitish or dull eardrum appearance can be seen if generalized process. On the other hand it is more common to be localized and readily identified as a striking white plaque against the remaining normal eardrum. In this video we can see an otoendoscopic view of myringoslerotic plague (crescentic white shape) which affects the pars tensa with the cone of light preserved.
