Ear Pic of the Week

This week Dr. Kahn captured the right ear of a 5-year-old with Serous Otitis Media with his CellScope Oto. He points out that you can clearly see a bubble of fluid behind the tympanic membrane. The patient is being treated medically and if the fluid persists, the patient will be a candidate for myringotomy and tube placement surgery.
