Ear pain is a diagnostic problem when examination of the ear shows no pathology. Referred otalgia may be caused by neoplasms; dental abnormalities or infections; temporomandibular joint dysfunction; sinus, pharyngeal or salivary gland infections; temporal arteritis; cervical arthritis, or one of the neuralgias. Ear pain may also be psychogenic.
