Defferential diagnosis (DD) of aural polyp

aural polyp,D.D,differential diagnosis,types,key points.

- It is mainly of two types: safe and unsafe.
- Safe type can be managed with medical treatment and keeping the ear dry. Hearing loss (if significant may be overcome by tympanoplasty or hearing aid).
If the patient is unable to keep his/her ears dry (e.g. professional swimmers), tympanoplasty is mandated.

If the ear is continuously discharging, cortical mastoidectomy must be added to the surgical procedure.

- Unsafe type (cholesteatoma) is always a surgical condition. Medical treatment may play a role in preoperative preparation or postoperative care. The goal is to obtain a SAFE DRY ear.
