The condition, also known as acute otitis externa (AOE), is easy to prevent, however - a fact the CDC is highlighting in advance of the nation's swimming pools opening around Memorial Day weekend.
For example, in two large earlier series, C mucifaciens was cultured from only 1 of 2,646 specimens obtained from patients with either acute otitis externa (AOE) (2) or acute otitis media through tympanostomy tubes (AOMT).
Inclusion criteria included 1) clinical evidence of stable or exacerbating acute otitis externa of less than 2 weeks' duration; 2) men, nonpregnant nonlactating women, or women using investigator-approved contraceptive measures that had to be maintained throughout the study period, which ended 30 days after last study drug administration; 3) diagnosis of otitis externa based on moderate to severe edema and tenderness, mild to severe erythema, serous to purulent secretion/exudates (sufficient for culture); and 4) informed consent by either the subject or by the subject's parent or guardian if the subject was younger than 18 years old.
