A 38-YEAR-OLD woman with right-sided hearing loss, otalgia, and multiple episodes of otitis media that were greater on the right side than on the left was referred for evaluation. Physical examination demonstrated a normal-appearing left ear and myringostapediopexy of the right ear associated with a posterosuperior retraction pocket containing squamous debris. An audiogram revealed normal hearing in the left ear and a mild to moderate conductive hearing loss in the right ear; the speech reception threshold was 35 dB in the right ear and 10 dB in the left ear.
