Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To explore the cause, diagnosis and therapy of sensorineural hearing loss associated with otitis media with effusion (OME) in children.

METHOD:

Thirty-five cases (37 ears) of sensorineural hearing loss associated with otitis media with effusion in children from a total 150 patients (225 ears) were analyzed retrospectively.

RESULT:

Thirty-five cases were treated with myringotomy with insertion of ventilation tubes or adenoids removal and myringotomy with insertion of ventilation tube. All cases were treated with drugs after the operation. Thirty-four of all cases improved completely. One improved slightly during follow-up with hearing level of bone.

CONCLUSION:

Thirty-five cases (23.3%) which had temporary threshold shift or permeant threshold shift were considered to be etiologically related to OME. The result of this study indicates that we have to be aware of a possible development of SNHL during the course of OME.
