Abstract

The specific features of the diagnosis and therapy of the dry form of atypical mastoiditis are discussed. Of great diagnostic importance were local changes in the mastoid area, otoscopic signs in the posterior-superior tympanic membrane and bone compartment of the auditory meatus, hearing impairment, thermographic signs of purulent-destructive lesions in the antrum and other cells of the mastoid process, and X-ray symptoms of bone destruction of the mastoid process. It is obvious that the clinical picture and development of atypical mastoiditis are closely related to the age and reactivity of the patient, irrational use of antibiotics and physiotherapy, concomitant diseases, especially endocrine pathologies.
