Abstract

[Excerpt] Otitis externa and otitis media are common in tropical Australia, and Indigenous Australians bear the greatest burden of disease.1 Indigenous children have one of the highest rates of chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) in the world. Their infections are more frequent, more severe and more persistent, and they occur at a younger age, and this has a significant impact on their learning and development.1 Improving the care of these infections may not only improve health outcomes but may also have salutary socioeconomic implications for this already disadvantaged population.
