Abstract

Objective: Management of otitis media with effusion (OME) is still an unresolved problem. Although watchful waiting gained popularity, it may not be applicable in the developing countries where medical and surgical treatments are being used more promptly. The aim of our study was to compare consecutive use of medical therapies with watchful waiting.
