tympanic membrane of an infantRegister Today!
- by GingerSue Jan 20, '05my book says that an infant's tympanic membrane may look "injected" - what does that mean?
- Jan 20, '05 by stsdocThe normal tympanic membrane should appear pearly gray, and you should not be able to see blood vessels except on the outer margins. When you can see blood vessels (other than on the margins), this is referred to as "injected."
