Otitis media with effusion: the long and winding road?

Williamson, I. and Little, P. (2008) Otitis media with effusion: the long and winding road? Archives of Disease in Childhood, 93, (4), pp. 268-269. (doi:10.1136/adc.2006.112383).

Record type: Article


Otitis media with effusion (OME) or glue ear has increased as a diagnosis in primary care over the past decade while grommet rates have declined. When developmental concerns are raised by parents or the child is noted to have frequent ear related problems, this often leads to referral and request for further expert assessment. Referral rates show more variability than for other ENT conditions such as tonsillectomy, and may partly relate to the present relative lack of accurate structured assessments in primary care.
