The solid constituents of amniotic fluid and the associated cellular exudate so frequently found post mortem in the middle ear of the new-born infant have been regarded as evidence of a condition distinct from otitis media of infancy. 1 Opinions as to their nature and significance have been diverse. Zaufal 2 thought them a product of spontaneous degeneration of the embryonal mucosa; Aschoff, 1b a foreign body reaction, and Hartmann, 3 a factor predisposing to secondary infection. Ascending… Expand
Histological observations of amniotic fluid cellular content in the ear of neonates and infants.
TLDR
Amniotic fluid cellular content (AFCC), especially keratinized, non-nucleated squamous epithelial cells and lanugo hair, have been detected in the fetal and neonatal ear and histological findings varied from the mere presence of AFCC to the formation of epithelialized granulation tissue. Expand
Abnormalities of the Neonatal Ear: Otoscopic Observations, Histologic Observations, and a Model for Contamination of the Middle Ear by Cellular Contents of Amniotic Fluid
TLDR
The hypothesis that disease in the neonatal middle ear may be more common than is generally appreciated is tested and the population of critically ill neonates was selected for study since this group can provide both clinical as well as histologic data. Expand
Otitis media in premature infants
TLDR
The high prevalence of otitis media in this group of premature infants suggests that infection may play an important role in premature morbidity and mortality. Expand
Neonatal bacterial meningitis. Analysis of predisposing factors and outcome compared with matched control subjects.
TLDR
Predisposing factors significantly associated with meningitis were complications during labor and delivery, maternal peripartum infection, and chorioamnionitis. Expand
Meconium contamination of the neonatal middle ear.
TLDR
It is speculated that patients born through thick, meconium-stained amniotic fluid may be at greater risk of sequelae such as otitis media from this foreign body inflammatory reaction in the middle ear and mastoid cavity. Expand
Pathogenesis of Middle Ear Adhesions
TLDR
It is concluded that the middle ear adhesion is a pathological phenomenon caused by infection, and a six‐stage hypothesis of pathogenesis is proposed: localized epithelial rupture, Prolapse of subepithelial tissue, Epithelialization of the prolapse, resulting in a polypous/fold‐like prominence, and Fusion of the end/tip of the prominence with another part of the mucosa. Expand
Intrauterine meningitis as a cause of hydrocephalus.
TLDR
A case of hydrocephalus resulting from intrauterine infection of the meninges is reported and the evidence of its prenatal origin is discussed and the probable mode of infection and neurosurgical implications are pointed out. Expand
LXXII Abnormal Pneumatization of the Temporal Bone
Today, with the changed character of otological practice, most otologists seem to be occupied with but two forms of middle ear disease. One has to do with the presence of a sterile fluid in theExpand
New Concepts in Care of the Pediatric Ear and Related Structures
Surgical correction of this deformity is possible utilizing the patient’s ribs to create an ear framework. Subsequent soft-tissue surgery creates a realistic auricle (Figures lb, Ic, 2a, 2b). SuchExpand
Longitudinal outcomes of distortion product otoacoustic emissions and wideband reflectance in infants
TLDR
Outcomes of distortion product OAE screening in infants at birth, and one, four, eight, and twelve weeks of age are described, suggesting that twelve weeks would be the most efficient screening period. Expand
