Chronic Ear Disease.
Chronic ear disease is composed of a spectrum of otologic disorders intrinsically tied to Eustachian tube dysfunction. Presentation can range from asymptomatic findings on physical examination to critically ill patients with intracranial complications. Internists represent the first line in diagnosis of these conditions, making awareness of the common signs and symptoms essential. With surgical management often required, partnership between internal medicine and otolaryngology is fundamental in the management of patients with chronic ear disease.
