E-mail Print
For the first time in Sri Lanka, doctors have found hundreds of home dust mites, similar to those found in mobile phones, in a human ear, Ministry of Health said.

This discovery was made by doctors of the Kalutra, Nagoda hospital when a patient arrived with an abnormal dust-like growth in his ear.

These organisms usually grow in external environments and this is the first time doctors discovered them in an internal environment.

Doctors say that this maybe due to the lack of personal hygiene and it is not yet confirmed that they have entered the victim’s ear by a mobile phone.
