Middle ear infection, or acute otitis media (AOM), is a common condition encountered in primary care. Unfortunately, the diagnosis and sequelae of AOM can be overlooked, leading to significant patient morbidity. This article aims to raise awareness of AOM and highlights the relevant anatomy, epidemiology and aetiology. We discuss prevention, diagnosis and management of AOM in primary care, the recognition of complications and when to refer to secondary care.
