Abstract:
In this retrospective study the incidence of acute otitis media (AOM) was examined in children up to the age of two years. The study was undertaken in a rural medical district in the west of Iceland with just under 4000 inhabitants. The medical records of 100 children (52 boys and 48 girls) were examined. Before they reached the age of 12 months 48% of the children had had AOM (56% of the boys and 40% of the girls). At 18 months 58% of the children had had AOM (67% of the boys and 48% of the girls) and when 24 months old 66% of the children had had AOM (77% of the boys and 54% of the girls). After the age of 17 months the difference in the cumulative incidence of AOM between the sexes was statistically significant. The mean incidence of AOM at 12 months was 0.70 episode per child (0.83 for boys and 0.56 for girls). At 18 months the incidence had reached 0.99 episode per child (1.13 for boys and 0.83 for girls). At 24 months the incidence was 1.27 episodes per child (1.38 for boys and 1.15 for girls). About 50% of first episodes did occur at the age between 6-9 months and about 50% of all episodes did occur at the age between 6-11 months. At the age of two years the children could be divided into three equally large groups. A third had never had AOM, a third had had one episode and a third had had two or more episodes; Athuguð var tíðni bráðrar miðeyrabólgu hjá börnum á svæði Heilsugæslustöðvarinnar Borgarnesi.
