Granular myringitis is a localized chronic inflammation on the lateral surface of the tympanic membrane. It is characterized by the presence of granulation tissue over the involved area in the absence of middle ear disease. It is a poorly understood disease and has received relatively little attention in the literature and easily mistaken for chronic otitis media due to similarity in clinical symptoms and findings. We reported a case of granular myringitis in a 25-year-old female that represents diagnostic and therapeutic challenges of the disease.
