Foreign Body in The External Ear Canal in a Child: Pencil Tip

External Auditory Canal Foreign Body

In the control examination of the patient, where I previously placed an ear ventilation tube (1.14 mm T Tube) due to chronic serous otitis media treatment, we found a pencil-like, cylindrical, almost black foreign body at the entrance of the external auditory canal (EAC). The foreign body was removed with the help of a curette. No trauma or pathological condition was found in the external auditory canal. It was interesting that the patient had no complaints and we detected it by chance. Especially young children are more likely to see foreign body in the external auditory canal. While some patients may experience pain, obstruction or discharge in the external auditory canal; Symptoms may not be seen in foreign objects that are small and do not obstruct the external ear canal and do not have chemical or acidic properties. In my professional life, I have had a patient with whom I produced very different types of insects from the external auditory canal. Especially when living and moving insects enter the external auditory canal, if the patient is not sleeping, patients usually apply to health institutions very quickly. I have some video recordings where I removed various insects from the external auditory canal, but I did not feel the need to broadcast it because it was not very nice and appetizing images.
