Otitis media.
Prim Care 1982; 9(2):401-12PC

Abstract

Dysfunction of the eustachian tube is the underlying problem in all types of otitis media. Systemic antibiotics and careful follow-up are the treatment of choice for acute suppurative otitis media, whereas topical antibiotics with saline irrigation are used in patients with a chronic condition. Myringotomy and tube insertion may be required in patients with secretory otitis media that does not undergo spontaneous resolution.
