Abstract

Three cases are reported of children in Ghana with pneumococcal meningitis and differing degrees of hearing loss. The children were examined up to 12 d after admission by means of otoacoustic emissions. The technique is objective, non-invasive, quick (< 5 min per ear) and suitable for use in paediatric wards.
