The diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of serous otitis media are discussed. Special stress is laid on the incidence of this disease in children with congenital malformations of the skull, maxilla and palate and in some systemic diseases. The conductive hearing loss bound with serous otitis is particularly important and difficult to diagnose in children with mental retardation and with neural hearing loss. Adequate treatment of serous otitis is essential for the educational future of these children.
