Hemotympanum is a well-known physical finding most often associated with basilar skull fractures and therapeutic nasal packing. A literature review demonstrated only five cases of hemotympanum associated with spontaneous epistaxis in adults. To our knowledge, there have been no reported cases in children. We present a case of a 7-year-old child with bilateral hemotympanums secondary to spontaneous epistaxis.
