CONTEXT There is limited information on the identity and antibiotic susceptibility of bacterial pathogens in children with chronic otitis media whose repeated antibiotic use may place them at increased risk of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. OBJECTIVE To determine, at myringotomy for tympanostomy tube placement, (1) the prevalence of bacteria, (2) the extent and patterns of antibiotic resistance, and (3) the risk factors associated with the presence and resistant status of pathogens.
