Because cholesteatoma is commonly a complication of CSOM, there is almost always co-existing inflammatory disease in adjacent mastoid air cells13.
In our series, non-dependent, homogeneous and polypoidal soft tissue densities were present in the mastoid antrum and middle ear cavity.
Thereafter the tympanic membrane was repaired by inserting a fascia into the ear canal, and the mastoid
cavity was sutured by pulling the myoperiosteal flap backward before a thin silicone tube was inserted for drainage.
antrum was absent, with the mastoid
process represented by a solid block of bone (figure).
This term stems from the fact that the TM defect exposes both the middle ear mucosa and eustachian tube (ET), but generally does not produce inflammatory changes in the mastoid
Increased fluid signal in the mastoid
air cells on T2-weighted MRI is sometimes interpreted as mastoiditis, and otherwise asymptomatic patients are referred to an otolaryngologist or otologist/neurotologist.
