Aural polyp manifests as a polypoid, non-neoplastic proliferation of granulation tissue admixed with an inflammatory cellular exudate. The polyp arises due to inflammation induced polypoid proliferation predominantly arising within the middle ear mucosa, usually as a consequence of chronic otitis media. Commonly, aural polyp emerges within the middle ear cleft and appears as a reaction to persistent, localized inflammatory mechanisms as encountered with chronic otitis media or associated conditions.
An inflammatory aural polyp confined to external auditory canal may arise from the external auditory canal itself or from the middle ear. Several middle ear lesions can permeate through the tympanic membrane and engender a polypoid mass manifesting within the external auditory canal.
