Foreign Body – Spider in Ear
A 5-year-old male presents to the pediatric clinic complaining of tickling and noise in his right ear.
The child has a spider in his ear canal.
The image shows a spider in the child’s ear. 2 ml of topical 1% xylocaine was instilled in the ear and allowed to dwell for 5 minutes. The ear was then irrigated and the spider was uneventfully flushed.
