In individuals with repeated cerumen impactions (about 5 % of the population), analysis of the cerumen shows high amounts of keratin. Apparently, migration of the skin and its sloughing pattern are abnormal—the epithelium and cerumen tend to roll up in a ball. This is readily appreciated when cleaning ears in the office—many times one will see desquamating segments of epithelium that still cling to the midcanal after most of the cerumen has been removed. Irrigation, as described in Chapter 2, is the simplest way for most clinicians to clean problem ears.
