109. Otitis media.

Otitis media. Otitis media (OM) continues to be one of the most common childhood infections and is a major cause of morbidity in children. The pathogenesis of OM is multifactorial, involving the adaptive and native immune system, Eustachian-tube dysfunction, viral and bacterial load, and genetic and environmental factors. Initial observation seems to be suitable for many children with OM, but only if appropriate follow-up can be assured. In children younger than 2 years with a certain diagnosis

111. Pneumococcal vaccines for preventing otitis media.

Pneumococcal vaccines for preventing otitis media. BACKGROUND: Acute otitis media (AOM) is one of the most common diseases in early infancy and childhood. Long term effects of recurrent episodes of otitis media, rapid emergence of drug resistant bacteria associated with AOM worldwide and huge estimated direct and indirect annual costs associated with otitis media have emphasized the need for an effective vaccination program to prevent episodes of AOM. OBJECTIVES: The object of this review

Does this child have acute otitis media? CONTEXT: Acute otitis media (AOM) is one of the most common problems in pediatrics. An accurate diagnosis of AOM can guide proper treatment and follow-up.

DATA SOURCES: We searched MEDLINE for English-language articles published from 1966 through May 2002. Bibliographies of retrieved articles (...) signs for detecting AOM. A distinctly red tympanic membrane is also helpful (adjusted LR, 8.4; 95% CI, 6.7-11) whereas a normal color makes AOM much less likely (adjusted LR, 0.2; 95% CI, 0.19-0.21). CONCLUSIONS: Although many of the studies included in this analysis are limited by bias, a cloudy, bulging, or clearly immobile tympanic membrane is most helpful for detecting AOM. The degree of erythema may also be useful since a normal color makes otitis media unlikely whereas a distinctly red

Screening children in the first four years of life to undergo early treatment for otitis media with effusion. BACKGROUND: Otitis media with effusion (OME) is the most common cause of acquired hearing loss in childhood and has been associated with delayed language development and behavioural problems.

118. Mucosal biofilm formation on middle-ear mucosa in the chinchilla model of otitis media.

Mucosal biofilm formation on middle-ear mucosa in the chinchilla model of otitis media. CONTEXT: Chronic otitis media with effusion (OME) has long been considered to be a sterile inflammatory process. The previous application of molecular diagnostic technologies to OME suggests that viable bacteria are present in complex communities known as mucosal biofilms; however, direct imaging evidence of mucosal biofilms associated with OM is lacking. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether biofilm formation (...) occurs in middle-ear mucosa in an experimental model of otitis media. DESIGN AND MATERIALS: A total of 48 research-grade, young adult chinchillas weighing 500 g were used for 2 series of animal experiments: one to obtain specimens for scanning electron microscopy and the other to obtain specimens for confocal laser scanning microscopy using vital dyes. In each series, 21 animals were bilaterally injected with viable Haemophilus influenzae bacteria and 1 was inoculated to account for expected
