* Some possible complications that result from VTs include persistent perforation of the tympanic membrane, granulation tissue around the tube (granular myringitis), chronic otorrhoea, blocking of the lumen of the VT, medial migration of the VT, and severe myringosclerosis.
These were the key findings from the first study to quantify the severity of illness in children who had acute otitis media (AOM) with and without bullous myringitis (BM).
Nasal pharyngeal aspirate and middle-ear fluid samples of 119 children diagnosed with acute myringitis were analyzed.
Nasal pharyngeal aspirate and middle-ear fluid samples of 119 children diagnosed with acute myringitis were analyzed; this included 82 patients with bullous myringitis and 37 with the hemorrhagic form.

[1] reported from Taiwan that, when compared with Juan (1986), [1] there had been an 8.5% increase in the incidence of MRSA in acute otitis externa; they also reported an increase in MRSA with granular myringitis, and that the biggest change in microbiology profile--a 15% increase in MRSA--had occurred with chronic otitis media.
Finally, chronic granular myringitis is, in effect, a granulation tissue disease--that is, granulation tissue is essentially its only manifestation.
