Eardrum Perforation
Click on Picture to Enlarge

The picture on the left shows an anterior-inferior perforation of the tympanic membrane (eardrum).  The eardrum is mildly inflamed from a recent
middle ear infection (otitis media).   Ear infections involving eardrums with perforations are often caused by a bacteria called pseudomonas.  The patient should always be given antibiotic eardrops which are sometimes combined with oral antibiotics.
