Correlation of nasopharyngeal cultures prior to and at onset of acute otitis media with middle ear fluid cultures.

BMC infectious diseases, 14(1):640.

We sought to determine if nasopharyngeal (NP) cultures taken at times of healthy visits or at onset of acute otitis media (AOM) could predict the otopathogen mix and antibiotic-susceptibility of middle ear isolates as determined by middle ear fluid (MEF) cultures obtained by tympanocentesis.
