Bottom Line: Otitis media of the left ear was diagnosed by video otoscopic examination in a 7-year-old, intact male Shih-tzu dog (weight, 5.1 kg), that also had three complex ceruminous adenomas and a Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection in the left ear canal.The complex ceruminous adenomas were excised using a diode laser, and repeated cleansing of the tympanic cavity and ear canal was implemented using a video otoscope.As a result, the ear canal was closed in a U-form, and the otitis media was cured.

ABSTRACT
Otitis media of the left ear was diagnosed by video otoscopic examination in a 7-year-old, intact male Shih-tzu dog (weight, 5.1 kg), that also had three complex ceruminous adenomas and a Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection in the left ear canal. In such cases, total ear canal ablation is usually required. However, a complete cure was achieved in the present case without total ear canal ablation. The complex ceruminous adenomas were excised using a diode laser, and repeated cleansing of the tympanic cavity and ear canal was implemented using a video otoscope. As a result, the ear canal was closed in a U-form, and the otitis media was cured.

The process of recovery after treatment. Day 1: After the first complex ceruminous gland adenoma has been excised, the second and third complex ceruminous gland adenomas are visible. Day 5: Tympanic cavity after the resection and removal of the complex ceruminous adenomas. (After resecting and removing the complex ceruminous adenomas using a diode laser, the tympanic cavity has been cleaned using a video otoscope.) Day 15: A narrowed ear canal opening to the point where only a 4-Fr tube can be inserted. Day 21: The ear canal has closed completely in a U-form (complete recovery).

Mentions: The treatment using the video otoscope was performed a total of 14 times over 21 days (Table 1). The tympanic cavity and ear canal were cleaned by this frequently repeated treatment. As the cleaning progressed, the healing began from the tympanic cavity and extended gradually to the opening of the ear canal. By 15 days, the ear canal had become a narrow tunnel, and only a 4-Fr tube could be inserted, and after 21 days, the ear canal was closed completely in a U-form, as shown (Fig. 2Fig. 2.
