Treatment of ear diseases has ranged from crushed garlic cloves and oil to oxen’s bile over the centuries. But the classic “intratympanic treatment “ started only about half a century ago after the development of the microscope and our visualisation of the tympanic membrane. In addition there was improvement in diagnostic technology like pure tone audiometry and availability of various drug formulations. This historical review article describes the various intratympanic treatment modalities for inner ear disorders like Menière’s disease, tinnitus and sudden sensorineural hearing loss over the past half a century.
