The condition may manifest as calcification and scarring from chronic inflammation and otitis media. Myringosclerosis may be caused by placement of a polyethylene tympanostomy tube, resulting in the formation of retraction pockets in the tympanic membrane. Involvement of the ossicles can lead to conductive hearing loss. Inflammation can lead to the formation of adhesions (adhesive otitis) and result in damage to the ossicles (cholesteatoma, etc).
