Introduction. Foreign bodies in the middle ear have been
described in the literature very rarely. They usually enter the
tympanic cavity through the external ear canal and eardrum as
a result of a mechanical injury.
Material and methods. The authors report a case of a metallic
foreign body detected in the right middle ear of a 54-year-old
man operated at the ENT Department in October 2012. The
patient was admitted because of chronic purulent leakage from
the right ear, which occurred after an injury at work in 1995.
Results and conclusions. After a foreign body had been diagnosed
in his right middle ear, the patient was qualified for surgery,
during which the foreign body was removed. He remains under
the care of the ENT-Department’s Outpatient Clinic without
evidence of chronic inflammation of the middle ear.
