The external auditory canal is the only skin lined cul-de-sac in the whole human body. It is known to perform both auditory and non auditory functions. The auditory function is that it permits efficient sound transmission from the environment to the tympanic membrane, self maintenance of a clear passage for transmission of sound. Its non auditory functions include protection of the middle ear and inner ear from trauma and environmental insults. This article dwells in depth about the entire gamut of anatomy of external auditory canal.
