Case description

In this video we can see aggregates of lymphoid tissue around the nasopharyngeal eustachian tube opening which can occure alone or in-combination with adenoids. Eustachian tube dysfunction with the potential of glue ear formation or eardrum retraction can be caused by a significant hyperplasia. [V- vomer, R- foof of nasopharynx, TT-tubal/peritubal tonsils, arrow- nasopharyngeal end of eustachian tube opening]
