    • Middle ear conditions are probably the most important relating to the upper respiratory tract, with 75% of all cases of acute otitis media (AOM) occurring in children under the age of 10 years
    • One in four children will have an episode of AOM at some time during the first 10 years of life with a peak incidence of diagnosis occurring between the ages of two and six years.
    • Around 80% of children had otitis media with effusion (glue ear) at least once before the age of four.
    • It is currently the most commonly diagnosed disease in the US.
  • 5. Otitis media
    • An inflammation of the middle ear cleft, can occur with or without symptoms
    • Classified as acute otitis media (AOM) with symptoms, and otitis media with effusion (OME) without symptoms. which is a chronic disease.
    • The most common pathogens are Streptococcus pneumoniae, nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae, Moraxella branhamella, and viruses such as rhinovirus, adenovirus, etc.
    • The key test to diagnose otitis media is pneumatoscopy, since an immobile tympanic membrane correlates best with presence of an effusion.
