    The article presents a discussion on a technique for defogging intra tympanic mirrors. The tympanic mirrors can reportedly be used to observe cholesteatoma of the sinus tympani in the midddle ear. This mirror, while in use, reportedly has a tendency to fog up, for the remedy of which, the use of...
