Tympanic Cavity

The tympanic cavity is a small cavity surrounding the bones of the middle ear.

It is formed from the tubotympanic recess, an expansion of the first pharyngeal pouch.

On its lateral surface, it abuts the external auditory meatus from which it is separated by the tympanic membrane (eardrum).
