Bluestone (pediatric otolaryngology, U. of Pittsburgh School of Medicine) and Klein (pediatrics, Boston U. School of Medicine) review the known medical information related to otitis media, a condition that inflames the middle ear and can lead to some degree of hearing loss. Topics include the anatomy and physiology of the eustachian tube, methods of clinical and microbiologic diagnosis, antibiotic resistance of otitic bacterial pathogens and the clinical implications, guidelines for management, the role of alternative medicine, and viral and bacterial preventive vaccines.
