Abstract

This study is designed to observe the clinical efficiency of Castellani solution for the treatment of granular myringitis (GM). We have included 20 patients among which 15 men and 5 women of mean age, 49.7 years; range, 9–77 years; they were diagnosed with GM and treated with Castellani solution. Topical treatment using Castellani solution and otoendoscopy of tympanic membrane were performed and the follow-up period ranged from 3 to 72 months and the mean follow-up period was 14.4 months. 13 patients showed complete resolution of GM after treatment with Castellani solution. However, one patient had a persistent, small, wet lesion residual lesion. Topical application of Castellani solution is a simple and effective treatment for GM. This study confirms the use of Castellani solution for treatment of granular myringitis.
