Objective: Systemic absorption of steroids is reasonable because of the lipophilic nature of steroids and high vascularity of the middle ear mucosa. To date, however, of the clinical trials designed to investigate this subject, to the best of our knowledge, none has been based on objective methods. This study aims to demonstrate whether the intratympanic administration of dexamethasone has any systemic effects.
