Abstract

Two hundred (200) patients with chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) in Haldwani city of Uttarakhand state and 100 individuals without otolological problems as control group were included in this study, which was done during the period between July’2009 to June’2010 at Base hospital, Haldwani and Krisshna ENT hospital, Haldwani. The clinical study included history taking, particulars of the patients, thorough ENT examination, tuning fork examination, audiological examination (including pure tonemetry and tympanometry). 58(29%) patients were suffering from CSOM (2-11 years), followed by 41(20.5%) (11-20 years) and 39 (19.5%) patients were under 2 years of age. Most common type was conductive hearing loss (87%) followed by sensorineural hearing loss (3.9%) and mixed hearing loss (1.2%). It was found that CSOM was most common among infants and children (48.5%).There was significant variation in the prevalence of CSOM, between Terai region (including Haldwani city) and Hilly region.
