Author information

Department of Otolaryngology, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.


Otitis media with effusion is almost universal in infants with cleft palate. Inuit children have a very high incidence of otitis media. The otologic problems of Inuit infants and children with cleft palate have not previously been reported. The current study presents 14 Inuit children with cleft palate. All show significant otitis media with effusion or chronic otitis media with tympanic membrane perforation. The management of otitis media in this special population of cleft palate children is discussed.
