Hemotympanum can be caused by temporal bone fractures, barotrauma, administration of anticoagulants, hematologic disorders, and chronic otitis media secondary to the formation of granulation tissue or a cholesterol granuloma. It can also occur secondary to nasal packing or spontaneous epistaxis, as well as eustachian tube dysfunction.
