Abstract

Introduction: Only two reports in English literature have described cement foreign bodies in the external auditory canal. Case summary: We present the case of a 37 year-old man with cement foreign body in the right external auditory canal. Removal of the foreign body was difficult because of severe adhesion to the external auditory canal and tympanic membrane. We therefore used acidic Burow's solution to dissolve the alkaline cement deposition. Application of Burow's solution immediately caused the deposition to take on a paste-like consistency that was easily removed. Discussion: Burow's solution seems useful for removing cement foreign bodies in the external auditory canal.
