Abstract.

Ear pain is a common patient complaint in the practice of the primary care physician. Acute otitis media can affect a person of any age, although it is more often seen in children than in adults. The disease is usually caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae (Diplococcus pneumoniae) or Haemophilus influenzae. The differential diagnosis and subsequent treatment of otitis media is approximately the same for children and adults. First-line therapy usually consists of an antibiotic regimen of amoxicillin in combination with autoinflation exercises. In the case presented, a pharmacologic regimen was combined with osteopathic manipulation.
